    Thought we should have a place to dump interesting news.

    I'll start. A new Beirut album has been announced for September. I wasn't blown away by the New song, but I love the band so hopefully it'll be a grower.

    That album was far less than a 7. So depressing because her last two albums were phenomenal and then she dropped off the face of the earth for a few years and put out one of the most unimpressive and underwhelming albums of the year.

    It's pretty much Ceremonial 2 with slightly different production values. Ceremonial also has a weak 2nd half. No clunkers but some forgettable stuff. Nothing awful.

    This is one of the most deluded things I've ever read on this forum. Seven Devils, Heartlines, Spectrum, All This And Heaven Too, Strangeness And Charm, all of those demos/acoustic versions included in the deluxe edition? LANDSCAPE?

    Florence is playing ACL and I bet Spectrum with the Austin skyline in the background in the pouring rain (bc ACL) would be killer.
