 - They Spent Their Wild Youthful Days In The Glittering World Of The Salons
96
They Spent Their Wild Youthful Days has grown on me to become one of my favorite shoegaze albums of all-time. What makes it so special for me is that it sticks out like a sore thumb in such a textural, noise-focused genre like shoegaze, instead taking a more streamlined and subtle approach to the genre. The songwriting is surprisingly varied and nonlinear, each track feeling distinct and fresh. Every song hops seamlessly from one to another with its quirky yet charming interludes.

earlier when i saw that this was released i literally screamed. thank you liz, the month of october belongs to you now

anyways, as for the song itself: apparently this was recorded in the last 15 years, as for the rest of the songs on her upcoming album Shade. her style of music here is folk again, however it's more akin to The Man Who Died in His Boat rather than Dragging a Dead Deer. the acoustics are clearer and rawer, and Grouper's vocals are airy and ethereal as always. i love how ... read more

i haven't listened to this yet, but i want to talk about this one song from this ep because i love it so much:

i've been listening to the version of Kantina / Were Are And Was Or Is on repeat lately and to be honest, i really prefer it to the studio version. compared to the studio version, the vocals and instruments have more clarity- the vocals especially with how clear and more loudly mixed they are. the problem i had with most of their studio material is that the vocals are mixed too lowly ... read more

i'm not too huge on the grimey, more punk noise-rock-leaning tracks in this album since i'm just not a fan of that sound in general, but the post-hardcore songs though... i love Kantina for how passionate yet heartfelt it is, and the transition to Were, Are and Was or Is, an even more heartfelt track. super super gorgeous. those two are my favorite songs from here, but if i had to choose one it would be the latter

Well, it surely don’t, however i don’t find this music to be very atmospheric. I somehow don’t feel these emotions that much. My score is rather about how dissapointed i am by the lack of feelings i’m gaining out of it, than about the music itslef, which is obviously very very good.
I’m glad you love it though, it’s a fantastic music anyways, better than almost anything that is beloved on this site.
And.. i love your Penderecki rating, so glad you enjoyed it🤍

That’s a perfect description of that album yesss🤍

I’m at the end of the disc one and so far it’s a 6!
Very enjoyable but it’s hmmm too basic for me?
Even the folk tracks, i wish they were more impressive in their arrangements somehow. But yeah, i should remember it’s not a free folk after all. Well, it’s definitely good stuff, won’t be in my favourites though

I’m about to listen to The Dance of the Moon and the Sun btw
Hopefully i will enjoy it😌
I really liked Daughter of Darkness so we will see, i’m quite excited
