I never tire of this Dry Cleaning tune. Best release in 2021. So glad to see them signed with 4 AD.

Dry Cleaning are great, but I don't think I like them. And this probably means I'll fall in love with them in like 5 years.

who does her voice remind you of? i can't place it to save my life

Alexalone! I picked this up on vinyl after hearing it on WFMU. This is only one flavor of what this killer band serves up. Things get nutty!

I would love to hear a collaboration of Perfume Genius and Jamie Stewart from Xiu Xiu. An interesting collision.
Avatar 10:29pm

@Pumpy - looked up the release on Discogs. The if-you-like comparisons are Mars Volta, Phoebe Bridgers and Wu-Tang. That's pretty nutty

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm
Ike:

Oh good, the only other reality show I watch is Survivor (yes, it's still on) and they just started a diverse casting initiative and had a great season 41 full of awesome people (but screwed it up a bit with too many random twists and gameplay mechanics)... seems like all the CBS/Viacom/Paramount Plus reality shows are following the initiative as of 2021 after a Black Survivor Players Alliance organized and basically petitioned them.
