@sethmadsen lol. Drunk people on bandcamp are better than drunk people on soundcloud. But no one is as perfectly artfuly weird as this album.

Fantastic, though falters a little in the middle from Mincer Ray to Her Psychology Today. It's an album full of original, abstract, short lo-fi pieces that will make you want to hit replay over and over again.

Love the comment about the artists sketch book. The aesthetic experience of GBV is so different in this respect that I found it difficult to get into for the longest time. Gave a couple listens a few years ago then put it aside. Recently listened to Alien Lanes and it just clicked!

This album reminds me of the end of Abbey Road (my favorite part of any Beatles album), where there are a bunch of short, unfinished but catchy songs that flow into each other, only Bee Thousand is a whole album built upon that idea. Definitely one of my favorite albums ever.

I want to see them play this whole album live, from start to finish. How awesome would that be? This might be my favorite BEA find ever. Like so many great albums, some people get it, others don't. I get this one and not some others that you get.

Sometimes an artist’s sketchbook is far more fascinating than the overly polished final piece.

I take back my previous comment. They are pretty much all good, there's just some lesser tracks. Love the lo-fi sound of it and the whole inconsistent fractured sound of the album. It's just pleasurable to the ears, but it will take a long time for you to appreciate it completely. I'm only just getting to know individual tracks other than 'Echos Myron' and 'I Am a Scientist' and this is my fifth listen.

You'll like it if you like Pavement, The Beatles, and Beck.
