REFLECTORS, THE: First Impression: LP

It’s interesting that, considering how little mainstream success it had, power pop still remains a thing. Yet, more than four decades past its “golden era,” it’s still very much alive and continues to exert an influence on underground music. These kids are up to their ears in power pop—insanely catchy, sugar-hooked ditties about unrequited love and the like. Good, good stuff that’s both modern sounding and true to its predecessors. –Jimmy Alvarado (Burger)
