With just a few days before it's released upon the world, Young Fathers' DEAD LP has already seen a remarkable response from some of the most esteemed music authorities.
At the top of the list we find UK's The Guardian, who blessed the record with a 4 out of 5 star lead-review, chock-full of praise and thoughtful words. To them, the Fathers have "quietly constructed a strange and intoxicating musical universe that feels entirely their own", a statement we fully stand behind. Elsewhere, DEAD was chosen as German publication Eventim's "album of the week" and an impressive 4.5/5 score. NME magazine is also singing DEAD's praise. So is the UK's The Skinny. So is DIY, and surely many more to come once the album releases officially.
If that's not enough reason to get excited, we advise to simply have a listen to the record yourself. DEAD is streaming in its entirety over at Pigeons and Planes.
