Booooo I want the CD so I can put it on my shelf with your other stuff :(

Ah well. *goes to download*

Kingbastard responds:

Yeah, sorry man. I wanted to do a CD release too, but I have just been way too busy with other things to be able to properly put the time into creating the design. I could've released a simple version, but that's just not me;) So 'Digital' only was the way forward for this release.

(Not sure where else to put this.)


I've been following your music since Beautiful Isolation, which I enjoyed but felt like the highs were too interspersed between the ambient bridges. I really liked your aesthetic though, so I kept checking back every now and then for updates.

The first listen to this knocked me off my feet. It's like you've taken your ideas from Beautiful Isolation & Lost Property but just skipped straight to the good parts in each song. Your songwriting has gotten stronger, too. I love how Treefella transitions through 3 different ideas. It's not flashy or showy. It's just really well done. The coda of C.O.W.A.R.D. is amazing, it's like being washed over by a giant wave of reverb.

The aesthetic is so good. It's like dream pop + shoegazer + (I hate comparing to bands) The Beach Boys. It's so warm, it's like a big fuzzy blanket.

This music is an inspiration. That you aren't 100x more popular is a crime. I bought the CD, I've spammed the link to my friends. I hope you can continue to make music for a long time.
