Very much looking forward to listening to this later. I have quite the soft-spot for their no-frills approach. It seems that most bands today try really hard to fit some trendy aesthetic, while these guys are writing consistently good rock songs that you don't need a dozen hyphens to describe.
Definitely. There's a lot going on in their sound, but it's still really easy to like their songs on first listen.
This is easily one of the best rock albums I have heard in a while. Dawes in my mind is really solidifying themselves as one of the best bands in the game.
Also, very solid review. Pretty much nailed it
Definitely can't wait to see what they do in the future. And thanks!
Nice review. Didn't know that "Hey Lover" was a cover, that disappoints me because I liked it so much. I was hoping they wrote it.
AOTY so far, and it has been a great year of music.
edit: also, more mentions need to be made about the guitar on this album. they've really stepped it up on that front as well.
Sorry! I didn't know it was a cover for awhile either, but that doesn't really impact how much I like it. Just feels like a fun, spontaneous, one-take cover to me, and I love that they put it on the album.
Did you like their older stuff?
