I hold St. Thomas as one of the most important and most underated albums of the last decade. Such an intimate yet grande album. When I found out that a follow-up was announced, I was beyond ecstatic. And the day came and I listened to 'Potato Flower'. I was speechless! Such a beautiful evolution. 'Potato Flower' hits you with a wall of slow riffs and emotion. Guitar work that makes me recall bands like Pavement, Bedhead, Low and early The National. Fortunately, what has stayed consistent were the powerful and personal lyrics. With the tragic loss of Scott Hutchinson, it warms my heart to know we still Scottish talent such as James Graham and David Moyes. This album is brilliant. And clearly one of the best albums of 2018.
