NEW-ish ALBUM: Purple Mountains "purple mountains"
#1
[Image: 220px-Purple_Mountains_-_Purple_Mountains.png]

Spotify listen:

released back in July
featured in two of the 'best album of the year' lists ive posted so I thought id give it a go.
American alt/indi-rocker
im hearing little bits of XTC and a touch of Joy Division on a couple of tracks
the dude hanged himself after years of addiction, marriage breakdown and depression just a month after this was released.
you can hear the sorrow and sadness in the songs (hindsight is a wonderful thing!)
anyway, had I have listened to this one back in July it would have been on the 'to purchase' list for sure
superb album IMO
