CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

Sounds From the Gulf Stream is this year's pure pop gem, and maybe last year's too. Can 13-year independent pop veterans make a credible record about staying young? "Yes, Yes, Yes"!

Pitchfork

Sounds From the Gulf Stream causes even the greatest of music scribes to fall into helpless descriptive blabber.

NME

Such sweetly observed good humour, such noble beauty is worth a dozen cathartic dirges. Sometimes, the best things in life are twee.

70
Spin

Sounds From the Gulf Stream offers vintage Amelia: coyly delivered songs that juggle second (and third) thoughts in lively melodies that keep piling on the twists.

60
AllMusic

Marine Research manages to create tracks more artistically interesting than Heavenly's work, but without losing too much of the indie charm that inspired superb releases like Le Jardin de Heavenly.

Do you want to be in a good mood as soon as possible? Do you want to have a nostalgia trip over an album you probably haven't ever listened to?

Find this thing. Find it wherever you can. Let it gradually raise the corners of your lips until you can't help but be glad you pressed "play".
