OH, I've read it. The discussion you mentioned was a reason I decided to finally dive into her catalog.

So her new album is getting no love in my house since the initial spins when it came out. Makes me sad.

I love the new album. I haven't fully digested it yet. I'm in the step-away-for-few-weeks-before-revisiting-it stage.

That's just it though. It has actively pushed me away. I might come around on it, but it's the first time I've ever felt her stuff sounded heavy handed and clunky.

I wish her old albums (up through Stories..) weren't so rare & expensive to procure on vinyl

Feels kinda samey to me. Take a breather on the politics, polly jean.

Footage from a concert last month in Moscow. I really do not like the new record, and the live setting doesn't help. But it is awesome to hear some of her older stuff with the fuller band arrangement (later in the vid). Also, I didn't know that Alain Johannes was touring with her:

Excellent. She's one I've always dreamt of seeing live & assumed it would never happen. I know some friends who tried for tickets to her LA shows this time around & got nothing. Maybe one day..

Finally seeing her live tonight. I'm a little embarrassed to admit I didn't know Alain Johannes & Mick Harvey were in her touring band. I'm even more excited for the show now.

Anybody listening to the remasters and demos she’s been releasing for the first few records? I finally took a spin through both offerings for Is This Desire? and that shit sounds amazing. Gonna try to grab all this on vinyl in good time...REALLY looking forward to Stories and Uh Huh Her re-release.

Wife & I have gotten each one as they’ve been released. Great to finally fill that gap in our record collection. Glad I didn’t go crazy buying original pressings for hundreds of dollars apiece as I considered a few years back. They all sound incredible. Highly recommended. Hoping to get lucky & grab a signed copy of Stories when they put it up on the website.

How are you enjoying the other demos albums? Would you say they are "must hear" or "nice to hear"?

I’ve been listening to Is This Desire a lot lately. It’s funny, after all these years I still feel like I haven’t fully digested/appreciated that record. It’s really special, but downtempo mood and the long song/short song thing makes it kind of impenetrable.
