The sixth LP by this San Francisco band doesn't break any new ground as much as it encapsulates the churning, off-beat guitar rock they've nurtured since 2009's Grey-Eyed Girls. Wolf Lie Down is bristly and frazzled garage pop sound with a few exceptions and refinements.
Like: Fleet Foxes, Woods, Wilco
Recommend to play: 2, 3, 5, 6
1. Wolf Lie Down (3:42) - Psych, garage rock, and a scoop of western twang.
2. One Of A Kind (6:06) - Crashing cymbals, surfy guitar, and soft harmonica.
3. Qualm Of Innocence (4:46) - Funky Americana charm with weird sci-fi noises.
4. Walking Blues (3:52) - Slow tempo, wispy riffs riding atop breezy melodies.
5. Dancing Chair (5:37) - Droning guitars and echoing synths that bridge psych-rock, noise pop.

7. Becomings (4:15) - Slow tempo western americana.
8. Black Widow (5:50) - Lovely, melancholy country/psych.
