While nothing here qualifies as any kind of radical reinvention of the indie-rock wheel per se, the band manages to astutely put their own spin on it, seemingly figuring out their own sizable strengths in the process.  


While the album sometimes suffers from hookless meanderings and sonic redundancies, its terse production and strong performances are an achievement indeed. 


It is clear that Eternal Summers have made more than just a third album; The Drop Beneath is the first record of their career that truly feels like the start of something special.


Working with indie rock hero Doug Gillard as producer, the band forgoes the tough, punchy sound of its previous album, Correct Behavior, in favor of something a little slicker and more accessible.


This is an LP that merits liberal use of the repeat button, and, even when it occasionally misfires, there’s always something interesting just around the corner, a fact that makes The Drop Beneath one of the most endearing albums to come out in the early part of 2014.

It reminds me so many things!
Fuzzy guitars, a straight rhythm section and the dreamy vocals set their fire.
But where's their mark?
