Craft & Vinyl - #YouBelongHere

On The Beths' new album Expert In A Dying Field, Elizabeth Stokes' songwriting positions her somewhere between being a novelist and a documentarian.The songs collected here are autobiographical, but they're also character sketches of relationships and more importantly, their aftermaths. The question that hangs in the air: what do you do with how intimately versed you've become in a person, once they're gone from your life? The third LP from the New Zealand quartet houses 12 jewels of tight, guitar-heavy songs that worm their way into your head, an incandescent collision of power-pop and skuzz.The album's title track "Expert In A Dying Field" introduces the thesis for the record: "How does it feel to be an expert in a dying field? How do you know it's over when you can't let go?" Stokes asks. "Love is learned over time 'til you're an expert in a dying field.""It's like Liz Phair fronting a band with Beatles-level melodic smarts." - Rolling Stone"A relentlessly upbeat barrage of electric guitar, punk drums, and sing-along vocal hooks that's done before you know it, begging for you to hit the repeat button and start it over." - MTV"A new paradigm has been discovered and Liz Stokes is it's Einstein." - WXPN The Key"Peppy and locked-in" - Stereogum"['Jump Rope Gazers'] fills me with unbridled joy" - Phoebe BridgersDeluxe vinyl, hot pink colour variant exclusive to Australia & New Zealand. Gatefold jacket, 140gm hot pink vinyl with a 24"x 24" poster inserted
