this honestly sounds a lot like Bed Red Machine, that Dessner/Bon Iver side project

yeah it's definitely in the same vein, I wouldn't say it's derivative though

This is worse than derivative tbf



Derivative can still be good if executed well



This is just outright bland

Do you flip a coin on whether to like something or not?

I think it's more of a 'dartboard blindfolded' situation

yeah it's a livestream of this album I think



will be cool to hear these songs de-Dessnered, although the vinyl mix is doing a fair bit of heavy lifting in terms of making me enjoy this more

Digging: Brockhampton - Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine

"What are you noticing in the vinyl mix?"



it's a lot richer and fuller-sounding. a lot of the tracks feel like they have a bit more depth and lose that awful, flat, chintsy GarageBand-ass-electronics mix the Spotify version has. makes the good songs even better and the bad songs are at least slightly more interesting



on top of that the extended outro on Crowhurst and the two bonus tracks that aren't useless edits of two songs on the album are a big plus, too. digital version of this album is an airball but the vinyl has some good stuff about it basically

Quite like a few songs on this, but I don't think its anywhere near the quality of Noonday Dream, especially Nica Libres at Dusk.
