A Tiny House… is a wonderful album in its own right, shimmering, soothing and startling at the opportune moments and confirming all the wonderful things everyone already knew about Sweet Trip: that’s no mean feat, conservative a scope as it may be.


Even though the album contains a lot of fun, chaotic moments, Sweet Trip sound more comfortable taking it slow this time around, and while the hooks aren't as obvious as they were on the band's previous two releases, it's still an immersive experience that rewards repeated listens.

The Needle Drop

Sweet Trip is mostly unaffected by the comeback curse on A Tiny House.

The Young Folks

Though the finale makes for a great send-off, it’s hard for A Tiny House to shed its lackluster center.

A Tiny House is best when listened to passively, and it takes two or three active listens to pinpoint the elements that feel phoned in.

Hailing from San Francisco, the famous duo hadn't given us any news for about 11 years, except for a few postcards from archives dug up, ... read more


sweet drip more like cowboy drip i love florida george line


Changed it from 70 to 100, when I first heard it, It was the most bored I was with a sweet trip album, but after listening to it MANY times, it has somehow grown to one of my favourites, tying it's place with VDC at the top.


Instrumentally, I absolutely love everything about this album. I've never really been a very lyrical listener, lyrics and vocals were kind of another instrument that I didn't really hear the meaning in unless I was actively listening to them. Upon finding out the story behind this album, I actually started paying attention to the lyrics, and songs I really really liked before became sickening. I won't be able to score this album because like I said, instrumentally, this is the type of album I ... read more


pop (made me check if my headphones were working multiple times)
