The leap in songwriting promises an advance, but the decision to record it in the same way as the billowing, freeform Hidden Lands makes it feel like a missed opportunity. 

Consequence of Sound

Though often too big to fully comprehend, Ceres & Calypso is the kind of album you wish you could get lost in, perhaps by opening up a wardrobe and climbing right in.

The Needle Drop
Candy Claws bring their fuzzy, lo-fi sound together with some creatively arranged psych pop instrumentation for a dream pop album that's musically and sonically dense. It's like biting into a juicy piece of pineapple the size of a tractor-trailer.
