Have you ever had a band in your life that you maybe wanted to like? A band that you'd given multiple chances to, but for some reason it just didn't register? You couldn't quite pick up on what other people saw in them? That was me with The 1975 in recent years, but this might be the record that pulls me into their camp. "People" was an absolute rocker, and "Frail State of Mind" sounds pretty damn good on the program too. Thinking that one will be sticking around for several weeks. Nice work, gents... Really nice having old friends Greg Dulli and of Montreal back in the mix, and I'm looking forward to digging deeper into the Sudan Archives record. It hasn't happened yet because "Confessions" is proving hard to move on from, much like Destroyer's "Crimson Tide." Might we be hearing from both on the upcoming "Best of 2019" shows? Perhaps...
