• fiery furnaces Blueberry Boat (double LP, £19.75)

    label: rough trade

    Reissue of the second Fiery Furnaces album. Originally released in July 2004, just over 10 months after their debut album ‘Gallowbird’s Bark’. In a rave review, Chris Dahlen of Pitchfork described ‘Blueberry Boat’ as “a record for the overgrown part of our brain that craves engrossing complexity.” Heather Phares of AllMusic wrote that the album “can be appreciated in the same way you would a puzzle box with intricate, endlessly shifting parts: you can spend a lot of time trying to unlock (or describe) its riddles, or just enjoy the artfulness behind them."
