my 2* basically just means apathy at this point, i need to revise my rating system a bit because the line between 3 and 2 is getting awfully blurry. however i'd still keep it on the lower side because i'm just really not a fan. doolittle, on the other hand, i can get behind for the most part but it's still inconsistent; the highs are just higher and more frequent
come on pilgrim might be my favorite release of theirs probably because it's so short and doesn't have as much time to fck up. plus front to back it's pretty strong. that's a good ep
i could never get into that album even when i really liked pixies. i just think it's so inconsistent and the highs aren't even that good outside of 'gigantic' & 'bone machine.' but then again i think they're largely possibly the most overrated canonized group so What Do I Know
So looking forward to their new album... 16 years is a long time but the tracks I've heard so far from Wildflower are all looking very promising, that they all still seem to give off that classic Avalanches vibe that you'd expect to. Loving the collabs they've done for the album as well, such as Danny Brown and Mercury Rev's Jonathan Donahue.
