as much as i love the clientele, i’ll only return for one or two songs


Outwardly lightweight and fits comfortably into the indie-pop sphere, but there's a real romantic beauty to it that I find irresistible.


tremolo guitars for days...but "Strange Geometry" is a pretty good Indie Pop/Folk-Pop record.
it's rarely ever more than that and there really isn't much strange about it...but it's a very enjoyable listen.

besides music like this makes me feel like i'm a rom-com and that makes me want to believe in love for some reason.
in short, this album is pleasantly inconsequential...
