Cherry Glazerr have ditched the bloody bandaids and grilled cheese sandwiches of their previous album and moved on to the deep stuff of life. This record is quite capacious in the genres it spans: garage punk, shoegaze, surf rock, metal. One of the first great records of 2017. |

3. (2:34) * Moon Dust—Synths and dreamy vocals interchange with driving rock parts.
4. (2:43) Humble Pro—FCC shit. Chiming guitars, drowned-out vocals, and epic guitar workouts in second half.

9. (3:01) *** Nurse Ratched—Echoes of the Haxel Princess sound. Chiming propulsive guitars and clear vocals.
