Album Review
Telepathic Juan
Reviewed 2019-01-02 
Siesta is the sophomore release by Malmö, Sweden guitar pop band Hater. Siesta is less whispery and less distorted than previous recordings. Jingly guitars a la C86 mixed with synthesizers (think mid 1980s modern rock) and more vivid vocals are the sounds of this record. Noteworthy.

Something else from the press release:
Sprawling guitars chime whilst slow burning grooves and classic rock rhythms allow tender-hearted vocals to soar over intelligible dream pop. Effortless and assured, the Scandi quartet drift eloquently into well-structured and stunning melodies. Produced by Joakim Lindberg (Yast and Hey Elbow) at Studio Sickan within old railway sheds outside of Malmö Sweden.

RIYL: The Go-Betweens, Alvvays, Snail Mail, The Chills and The Concretes.
FCC CLEAN!

1. From The Bottom Of Your Heart (3:11) – Slow popper. Sweet vocals.
2. *** It's So Easy (4:55) – Medium-up tempo. The single of the record. Killer dreampop cut. Synths included.
3. ** I Wish I Gave You More Time Because I Love You (4:28) – Slow recording. Great melody. Beautiful vocals. Sax included.
4. *Closer (4:22) – Medium tempo guitar driven piece. Not bad.

6. I Sure Want To (1:22) – Short slow piece. Synths and vocals.
7. *Things To Keep Up With (4:25) – Slow/medium tempo recording. Nice guitars. Think C86 sound. Vintage moods.

11. Cut Me Loose (4:55) – Medium-up tempo. Part shoegaze, part guitar pop. Mellow and dramatic.
12. ***All That Your Dreams Taught Me (3:41) – Slow tempo. This cut could also be another single. Well-designed piece. Synths included.
13. **Seems So Hard (4:42) – Slow tempo. Think Alvvays meets El Mato A Un Policia Motorizado. Just perfect.
