CRITIC REVIEWS

90
No Ripcord

A finely crafted patchwork of ideas that constantly keeps the listener guessing.

80
PopMatters

S/T is at its best when it capitalizes on the sort of gorgeously layered, acid-damaged psych-pop this group has excelled at since 2005.

79
Pitchfork

Organic and jubilant, it successfully weaves psych, world, rock, and folk traditions into something new and endlessly compelling.

75
A.V. Club

As always, Akron/Family is fascinated with many genres and never entirely loyal to any.

70
Tiny Mix Tapes

It's to the band's credit that shifting from psych-folk burlesque to thoughtful but approachable avant-pop feels more like a change of clothes than a change of heart.

70
Consequence of Sound

A re-debut of a band that blatantly refuses to contain their creativity and innovation.
