Haru Nemuri - æ˜ĨįĢį‡ŽåŽŸ (Shunka Ryougen)
85
YES this album is amazing, and I have never wanted to be able to understand Japanese as much as I do right now!

So, Haru Nemuri! If you want a very brief history on her musical career, check out my review for her first LP - but it has all led to this! ‘Shunka Ryougen’, her sophomore album, finally coming out more than four years after her first. Other than Animal Collective, this has been the album that I was most excited for this year, which is saying a lot, considering the sheer ... read more

Haru Nemuri - æ˜ĨとäŋŽįž… (Haru to Shura)
82
Happy birthday!!!! 🎂🎂🎂

Four years ago today, Haru Nemuri released her first full-length studio album: “Haru to Shura” (this is how I’ve most often seen it romanized). I only discovered this album in 2020, but I’ve been coming back to it a lot recently, as I look forward to the release of her second studio LP later this month. Especially recently, I’ve been struck by just how great much of this music is - to celebrate four years of Haru to Shura, I want to ... read more

Growing up has been a recurring theme in Animal Collective’s music. From Spirit on, the band has created a handful of songs discussing the exciting and frightening aspects of this inevitable process - it’s terrifying to have to leave the comforts of being a child, but at the same time ... read more

AnCo’s 2016 album, Painting With, was a reaction to the growing popularity of reverby soundscapes in music; instead of creating ambient, experimental noises, the record focused on putting together more accessible, happier tunes. That album shows the band ‘settling down’ in a way - it’s a less ... read more

Collaborative review of I’ll Try Living Like This featuring @CyberCrasher_TV

Before the review begins - this is just one version of this review. I edited this review for my page, and CC edited a different version for hers. Please check her review out; it’s quite different, and there’s some great moments not shown in mine. :)

Now I’ll let CC begin the review. It’s a little back and forth, with both of us sharing our thoughts on different parts. Hopefully you enjoy ... read more

“Their most accessible album to date”
~James Acaster, on Painting With by Animal Collective

There’s not much more to say, to be honest. Regarding Animal Collective’s 10th studio album, Painting With, I find myself agreeing with Mr. Acaster and @Knewnie; it’s accessible, it’s got some decent ... read more
