Album Review

Reviewed 2017-02-21 
Guitar-driving, low-fi, shoegazy pop. Walls of sludgy guitar with huge synths and bright vocals. Solid pop song structures rise out of a mess of noise. Formerly of Hooray For Earth, Noel Heroux is launching on a personal project as Mass Gothic. In his second release, he’s finding his footing for sure. Still not the cleanest of records, Sup Goth has a lot of quality in just 5 tracks.
Genre: J. Mascis’s day dreams, sludge pop
RIYL: Hooray for Earth, Deerhunter, King Tuff, Ty Segall
Favorite Tracks: 4 and 5 are killer!
Dynaride (3:31) - Finding footing with bouncing synths, walls of sound, pretty fem vocals
A Run (4:27) - Seriously noisey intro, crystaline shards of sound, fat synthesizer crawls forward, echoing vocals leap to center stage, really cool layers of instrumentation for outro
Piano at the Drink (1:13) - More of an interlude, some clouds of piano drifting about
Sup Goth (4:47)*** - Opens with layers of reverby riffing, some keyboard, and washed out vocals rising above the mess. Belted chorus with some poppy percussion too, oooo this is delicious
Shopping (3:20)** - Heavy spoken-word intro with same sludgy chords from before, builds into absolute jam, explodes around 1 min in
