SPIT-TAKE: Falling Star: LP

Feb 05, 2020

I’ve been a Spit-Take fan since I saw them on a tour that apparently happened right before the recording of this album, so it’s rad to finally get a copy of Falling Star on vinyl. It’s a perfect soundtrack to wistful window-staring, mid-tempo bummer rock that glows with this nostalgic suburban ache. It’s a feeling that a lot of indie bands want to create in this post-Pavement world, but Spit-Take really nails it. I have to be honest—I’ve seriously had this hook from “Postcard” (“Oh, I feel like such a fool when I’m around yoooouuu”) stuck in my head for days at a time, on and off since I heard it for the first time last year, and I’m still okay with letting it stay there. –Indiana Laub (Dead Broke, [email protected], deadbrokerekerds.com)
