Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2011-10-04
Laid back, lo-fi glazey pop. Slowed, lazy songs with elements of jazz, muddled textures, and psychy hynotism. Songs tend to be unassertive, earthy, and carry a soft tape hiss. Lynch plays all the instruments and is a PHD candidate in ethnomusicology. If you like Ducktails, Real Estate, or narcotic slow pop music, I highly recommend this. No FCCs.

Side A: (33 RPM)
1. Sax and percussion intro then moves into laid back lo-fi pop, melodic harmonica, way-effected distant vocals, like some of the slow Deerhunter stuff. (4:15)
*2. Slow shuffle , slow hypnotic bob with falsetto vocals. (2:51)
*3. Off-time little relaxed key swirl and chilled vocal delivery, layered dreamy backing vocals come in. (4:20)
4. Sequenced synth lead, completely changes gear with drums to a rhythmic, 2 chord pleading, twinkling, groove with layered woodwind simplicities. (5:02)
*5. Warm blanket of woodwinds and soft guitar instrumental loveliness. (1:36)

Side B: (33RPM)
6. Slow, spacey ambiance and sax, bladerunnercore-lite. (4:02)
7. Lazy, slow bob led by pretty acoustic guitar patters, with soft jazzy drums and prominent bass. (3:41)
*8. Percussion kicks and loops acrobatic, melodic bass line, sunny baked synths, then vocals come in late. (3:15)
9. Slow electronic-y fade in, looped bongos, hypnotic guitar vollies around similar notes. (3:30)
*10. Layered guitar harmony and chippy, warm vocals, swelling navel-gazing bobby jaunt with some synthy noodling later. (3:54)
