JEANINES: Things Change: 7” EP

Jeanines have followed up last year’s brilliant LP on Slumberland with this brief, utterly charming folk pop collection. There’s more of a spare, acoustic feel this time, less of a post-punk bounce, more of a hop. There’s still the jangle and clear harmonies and smart introspection and painful goodbyes, but something is—if not sunnier—somehow brighter. They’re moving on and moving up. –Matt Werts (Where It’s At Is Where You Are, wiaiwya.bandcamp.com)
