ALBUM | The Lentils – Brattleboro is Flooding

5/5 golden merles

Brattleboro is flooding is one of my favorite albums of the last decade.

Sweet Disease is one of the finest tracks of that admirable set. Although it feels like the dawn rising, it is the 2nd to last song on the album. Not a bad way to end: a beginning factored in, locked and loaded. Something to remember and maybe clumsily burglarize.

Csehak has written many rich and originative lines in his time occupying space on this earth and more than a few of them found their way into this album.

“You gotta hand it to the other side / at least they’re forgiven.”

Other standout tracks are I lost my favorite enemy, a theory of drowning, and brattleboro is flooding.

These fine young thugs have found their way onto most mixes I have made over the last few years. The Heart is a lonely Mangler (Botanical Castings) and The Loaves of Oblivion (11 new flavors of oblivion and why the shining ones don’t want you to know about them) will feature on this archive at some point soon, if I am to continue having these things appear daily.
