Super duper mellow indie rock. If you’re looking for a sleepy riff to roll you into Fall, here it is. A couple of the tracks clock in over five minutes, which feels like an eternity when it comes to punk. To be quite honest, I felt like it was a bit of a slog. Apparently, it was recorded half in Akron and half in Seattle, a bit like The Postal Service, which in and of itself is rather impressive to get two halves to meld into one recording. I’ll laud them on their motivation for the record, as their bandcamp dedicates it to anyone who’s “struggled with addiction, codependency, and traumatic emotional experiences.” That’s a crowd deserving of some great art. I enjoy the first two tracks as they’re the only ones with a bit of umph to them, but after that the tempo really drops off and I lose interest. If you like slow, mathy stuff, this might be for you. –Kayla Greet (Reflective Tapes)
