Favorite album cover of the year, with a cinematic collection of tracks that rewards and surrounds at each repeated listens.

A frantic and frank piano-and-vocal work of straight forward honesty and vulnerability. Listening to Full Mood made my heart swell in this day of hearts. Like a cross between Karen Dalton and Daniel Johnston.

Rather a Nick Cave vibe, don't you think?

"Will this day ever end?/ I need a new beginning.”

Named after a particular shade of pink known for its calming effects, their rambunctious and incendiary sophomore effort further cements their name on the post punk scene as an immense talent. Like a combination of Women or Gang of 4, this is truly the first must-listen record of the year.

Going to put on my shoes tonight and dance the night away with the oscillating neon strobe lights to this.
