    New GT around the corner:


    Didn’t do much for me at first other than weird me out a bit (both the song and the video) but enjoyed it much more the next day during a casual listen. As with the singles from the last album, it makes me curious to see what else is in store...

    I dug it, been looking forward to another album from these guys. I will miss Rudy’s drumming though, shit was nasty.

    Sounds like Minus the Bear. Good stuff. I hope there are more high energy tracks too.

    I love these dudes, I play the shit out of the first two albums. Bummer Alex is gone, but he is apparently on a mission to play in every band ever, so they are lucky they got 2 albums out of him. The first listen was a bit weird for me too, but I’m digging it more now. I’m sure the rest of the album will be good. A Head Full of Moonlight had “Understanding Silence” and We Will All Be Gone had “I’ll Finish This Book Later”, this single is very much in the vein of those.

    So happy they are still making music! Following Elliot on IG made it seem like they weren't working anything haha. Love the mix, especially the bass tone.

    Man, I'm a huge fan of the first 2 records, but I just can't get into the Kimball and Ghost Vomit. The intermingling of the guitars, drums, and vocals are just...clumsy? I don't know. They all seem to be competing with each other and there isn't a strong sense of rhythm because of it.

    This is especially present in Ghost Vomit. I respect JP Bouvet on drums, but where the hell is the down beat? The whole song is one big fill that never grooves.

    I'm frustrated because I'm disappointed so far. Really hope these tracks grow on me.

    I'm sure it will happen...

    Maybe get a little "Former Wrestlers" to get you in the mood.

    Didn't like the first single but the second one was really cool. Looking forward to hear the rest of it

    Ha first listen to it today.

    Really like Ghost Vomit, Kimbal do need to grow a little i guess.
    Biggest complain: songs are to short!
    Some times I get some Mars Volta vibes, which is in mine book a good thing

    Looking forward for the whole album! The last one I liked a lot!

    Ah en since it was not posted hire yet: Ghost Vomit:

    I dig it. Here’s to hoping the compression’s not quite as heavy on higher bit rate playback.

    It does sound super compressed, doesn't it.

    Not a huge fan of the mixes on these tracks, but I like the tracks themselves. The newest song is great too, the bass is monstrous at the end.

    Beat me to it. :)

    Very smooth, if a bit uneven. Everything’s pointing to a very textured/vibe-y record. Between that and the drums giving it an almost TSF feel, I’m down.

    Another new one. At this rate they’re going to release the whole album before the actual release date.

    I don't want to come off as an asshole but does this feel a bit pretentious? I like the songs that have come out but I just keep getting a pretentious vibe from the whole art piece thing

    I don’t know that I’d call it pretentious. In my mind’s eye they presented the music to whoever is doing the digital art and let them have at it - thereby showcasing that person’s work as well (I could be 100% wrong, this is just my personal theory). It could even be the other way around, I’d imagine we’ll find out at some point.

    That said, the art (at the most) puts me off a bit - which is why I ignore it!

    Yeah that's definitely a fair way to look at it. I think I'm in the same boat where I find the art a bit odd so that may be why I get those vibes.

    I'm not a fan of the whole art gallery schtick but I'm only listening to the music, so I don't really care either way.
