Album Review

Reviewed 2013-10-24 
Local psych pop with some very big influences from Os Mutantes/tropicalia music, Brian Wilson, and Elephant 6. vocal harmonies, disjointed but saccharine songs, experimental effects. Many many layers of sounds; "astro-pop" and "lysergic pop" (from their Bandcamp) both describe them well. The band consists of Will Halsey (drummer for Ash Reiter) who sings most of the time and Ash Reiter, plus a ton of guest musicians.

RIYL: Os Mutantes, Pet Sounds, Beatles, laid back Of Montreal

1 (3:16) Long opening over laughing sample, fuzzy riffs, spacey psychy sound. Beat fades in and out
*2 (3:02) Fuzzy, bouncy shuffle blurs the vox right out of comprehension. Really nice pop
3 (2:23) Gritty, rhythmic indie pop with low vox, space warbles, sweet backing vox
4 (2:39) Ambient/noisy exploration, 30 seconds chugging rock at end
*5 (2:48) Waltzing pace, dreamy, poppy harmonies, sneaks a verse from Beach Boys' "Caroline No" in
6 (3:08) "Echolalia" - a spacy, slowed down take on Tropicalia
7 (3:26) Lush midtempo, late Beatles vox, spacy effects, fuzzy guitar. Ends w/ 10 seconds left
8 (5:12) Dreamy, folky, Tropicalian, stroll of a pace, F lead vox; tempo doubles w/ 50 seconds left
*9 (2:32) Fun, sugary, surfy go-go pop
10 (3:29) Throbbing almost dancy laid back pop over tropicalia
11 (1:17) Pretty, downtempo tropicalia pop, F vox
12 (3:23) Laid back, rainy surfy guitar over Latin percussion. Quiet trop final 30 seconds
*13 (4:05) Spacy, beachey pop; M/F harmonies, backing "ahh"s. Quiet ocean wave ending then cuts out a bit early
