INFINITES, THE: Self-titled: LP

Chill, beachy indie pop tinged with psych and surf. There’s some kind of concept going on with the song titles, which are all (fictional?) people’s names, but no one bothered to include an insert with this release, so who knows? Sounds sort of like a less memorable Belle And Sebastian, maybe something you’d hear playing in the background of a nondescript indie movie. This brand of guitar pop is probably a lot of people’s favorite genre, and I suppose The Infinites are doing it pretty well, but I don’t hear anything to latch onto. Bands like this just sound like “default music” to me. –Indiana Laub (First Humans, [email protected], firsthumansrecords.com)
