SPACE RAFT: Self-titled: LP/CD

Revamped ‘70s pop rock. Has me thinking Elephant Six takes on Harry Nilsson. The record is accessible with pop rock sounds and middling amounts of ‘90s alt power pop and, of course, touches of psychedelic pop. It stays pretty clean, getting dusty here and there, but still clean. Except for one ill-advised dingy track on the back. Sounded like a bad take on a Sabbath song. Like an Elephant Six band trying to interpret Nilsson covering Sabbath. Ambitious, but it just doesn’t work. Like I was saying, nothing offensive outside of that faux pas. File under Barista Rock?
