I've noticed that a fair few musicians tend to name their albums after themselves when they're certain that it's a very "them" album, like it's the best of their work thus far. This is definitely the case here, it's gently sad and contemplative, and it rocks.

Best track: Love Is To Die. In a time where it feels like even the edgy artists are still putting together catchy choruses in the hopes of drawing in new listeners, it's refreshing to hear a song like this where the verses are all lustrous and pretty... and then the chorus is a bit limp.

Starts out very strong, but then doesn't seem to make up it's mind if it's a particularly hazy indie pop album or an anestistethic, ecletic ambient release, and ends up being a rather unengaging muddle by the midway point onwards. Fool is certainly pretty but would've worked better as an extended ep, it's just never really decides what it wants to do in the long run.

Nice. My first taste of this band. Great for people who can't wait for the next Beach House. Not that it's the same but there are certainly similarities.

Enjoyable. Excellent drumming and an ethereal vocal delivery. Brooding.

Not a bad album really, but ultimately I don't think it will be in the best of the best for 2014

I'm genuinely irritated that this hasn't gotten more recognition. I've been practically obsessed with it. It's very subdued, but also really intricate, and doesn't stop it from having big moments throughout the album (like, shifts and climaxes) ; think the last minute of Biggy, or Teese, Son, etc. It's just done in a really subtle way.

It crawls under my skin, it does seemingly very little but still manages to surprise me all the way through, it combines their sound with the influences from the likes of Portishead (even in the vocal delivery) in the best possible way and manages to create something that's incredibly atmospheric and quite simply hypnotic.

Track picks: Feeling Alright, Biggy, Teese
