Nice little easy listening, psych-tinged record with plenty of tracks that stand out. Sounds effortless.
But its one of those albums where most of the songs a good, but not great. This will need a reassessment later in the year i think.

Best tracks: Big Nothing, Songs fr Joanna, Twin Heavy, Condo, Heavy Traffic, Why you gotta do it,
There's so much I want to say but to keep it short this album is amazing front to back! Filled with feel good vibes, old school sound, and incredibly groovy.

WJH's voice reminds me of the Cars on some tracks and Paul McCartney on others.

Do yourself a favor and check this out asap. One of my favorites of the year!
