debut album: BOBBY

Bobby ranges from epic, dreamy freak-folk music that "sound[s] variously like a nodding-off Joanna Newsom or tUnE-yArDs with the caps toggle off" according to Pitchfork. And according to a youtubee, there are songs on here that are like Minus The Bear's old stuff. Mostly lots of lush music that are floaty with bell-ridden percussion, some sleepier songs, some more tribal and repetitive. But lots of pretty beautiful music.

FCC Free; Try: 1, 9, 10

* 1. We Saw: medium-up; Long but gorgeous! dark flurry of whirlwind of Aztec-like chant, escalates, really beautiful
2. Sore Spores: ufo-accompaniment to Dirty-Projectors like female vox, then xx guy like vox--happy
3. Tomb Bloom: slow-med tempo; trail rhythm, doppler effect guitars + synth, and male vox
4. Nap Champ: slow tempo; very, very mellow, nap-inducing, repetitive
5. It's Dead Outside: mid-tempo; light tribal constant, turns into slow-mid tempo; droning, hippie-indian infused sound
6. Loading Phase: slow instrumental, dragging, digital beeps among crackling digital rain
7. Ginger (Water Birth): mid-tempo strange digital warping scratching with synth-accordian and tapping, that grows into indie-chant song that ends with a dissonant digital menagerie
8. Downing: instrumental break ofhelicopter digital hushing, factory sounds
* 9. Shimmychick: slow-mid tempo indie pop, great kind of hazy gazy stuff
*10. Groggy: like Minus The Bear's old stuff, stretched warped slow-mo voice, backed by guitar and digital background, starts slow and escalates into a best coast/chairlift type droning upbeat song
11. Dustbbeam: slow song, rolling shaker, tides of voices
12. The Shed: dark slow-mid tempo, rolling-jagged, choir chant, hissing, later digital bubbles, static chorus, then frequency and spoken voices that fade out.
