Produced by Zachary Cole Smith. Album Is the Is Are. Is the Is Are Lyrics. You ain't the first to realize You ain't the first to look in my eyes. Over my head and positive I have a gift that i’ll never give. You ain't the first You ain't the first.

Is the Is Are is the second studio album by American indie rock band DIIV, released on February 5, 2016 on Captured Tracks.

Is the Is Are is told with barefaced honesty, seen through the lens of a band that is reclaiming their capacities as a unit after their lead songwriter faced near self-destruction. Is the Is Are is almost better experienced in small doses, three or four songs at a time. The album feels meticulously thought out, with DIIV both opening up their sound and then honing in on the sharper moments they discover.

Limited Pressing Vinyl, very lightweight. media is good, there are some light cracks during Side C but overall a good pressing of a post-shoegaze album. the contents of the album are a lot, great art and interesting booklets my only disappointment is that the album should have been a Gatefold Cover.

Is the Is Are is almost better experienced in small doses, three or four songs at a time. Smith is a careful student of indie rock history and clearly wanted to make something that could fit alongside classic records by legendary auteurs. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make a classic record, but it’s also okay to fall short of that goal. Is the Is Are isn’t a grand redemptive masterpiece that will change the minds of those who wrote off the band.

Highlights (including Dopamine, Is the Is Are, and the aching Mire (Grant’s Song) ) don’t break the mood so much as surface like moments of clarity in the middle of a dream. Shimmering, immersive, and buoyed by a light sense of melancholy throughout, Is the Is Are is filled with stunning purpose, distilling the jangly shoegaze outfit’s early sound into something atmospheric but focused-despite its palatial, 17-track length. Highlights (including Dopamine, Is the Is Are, and the aching Mire (Grant’s Song) ) don’t break the mood so much as surface like moments of clarity in the middle of a dream.

Ndyardin
One of the best shoegaze bands out there with their distorted mystifying sound. Vinyl Me Please, doesn't letdown with their releases either, truly the best record club!
Jay
the final color isn't very much like the preview picture but it still looks very nice.
