DIIV

Is The Is Are


Dreamy New Yorkers DIIV return with 17 track double LP 'Is The Is Are' on Captured Tracks'Is the Is Are' is an album years and many personal struggles in the making for its architect Zachary Cole Smith Recorded and mixed in various locations in Brooklyn the album showcases everything you know and love about DIIV and many things you did not all with an added nuance and depth It's a 17song album statement intended to resonate with its audience in much the same way that 'Bad Moon Rising' or 'Tago Mago' has for Smith himself An extension and deepening of the musical ideas first expressed on 2012's criticallylauded 'Oshin' 'Is The Is Are' yields a multiplicity of textures lyrical themes and moods It is a more diverse world than 'Oshin' with different parameters and ideals Dark and honest to a fault the new songs are dynamic loud quiet sad they are songs that hiss and snarl songs that as Smith wrote recently represent 'the real me'A  Smith's vocals too are much closer to the foreground layered legibly on top of tidal waves of shimmering guitar and melodic bass weaving in and out leaving a distinct and indelible imprint 2LP Rough Trade Exclusive 500 Copies on Coloured Vinyl This is a different Colour to the US Version
