Yeah, full length, and one (totally awesome) single so far.

Sounds pretty close to Homogenic to me.

Like any new Bjork release, it needs a few spins to really come into focus.

Will no doubt buy it, waiting to see what kind of packages will be available.
I'm surprised there isn't more Bjork buzz on EMF tbh. I think this is her most affecting, personal record since Vespertine. Especially considering the context of both albums, the comparison seems apt.

Vulnicura is just devastating to listen to. The strong sense of dread percolating through each track. The discord between gentle strings and abrasive electronics. Some tracks sound like she's singing on the verge of tears, if she isn't crying already. These are still sounds she's experimented with previously, but this LP is particularly fresh - for one, it's less self-indulgent than some recent releases that could border on emphasizing concept over music (i.e. Biophilia). Like you said I'll have to listen to it a few more times to really digest this record, but it's her best in years. It's refreshing to hear her get back to the basics.

As for the cover itself, I'd say it perfectly encapsulates the sound of the record, which Bjork definitely has a knack for.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

I really loved Vulnicura. It's not an album that I get actively excited about, but so far it's been a warm, delicate, and lonely album to listen to. Listening to it makes me think of all the could have beens in my life, and makes me want to fix a stiff drink, before I sink into my bed for a second listen.

I definitely get the Vespertine/Homogenic comparisons in that the writing is a lot more accessible. And yes, it's my favourite since Vespertine (personal favourite), though I am also a big fan of Medulla and Biophilia (I will pretend Volta never existed).

Is it just me or is the latest of Montreal just really bad?

Another band I feel I should absolutely love given my taste in music but have never been able to fully get into.

Oh well.

I've never really been able to get into Of Montreal. They are just too weird for me, to the point where I think Kevin Barnes is more interested in being a pan-sexual glam rock star than in actually making good music, because most of it is pretty uninteresting and groan-worthy.

Vulnicura is amazing. I need to give it a really good listen first though. I've listened to it, but I want to focus all my attention on it again.

Out on 11th Feb. The new single is called "とんがりヤング" and is the theme song for upcoming movie "死んだ目をした少年" (The Boy Who Has Lifeless Eyes)

You can hear a bit of the new song at the end of the trailer
Boy Who Has Lifeless Eyes


Cant say the movie interests me too much, but I'll still give the track a spin regardless.

I feel like Japan loves sticking bands and artists with theme song duty more than any other country. Surprised Charisma.com is going that route already.
