The fact that Quasi have put out an album that feels so different is a testament to their creative longevity, and even though they've been putting out solid work for their entire career, their blend of strange and sweet pop has never lost its ability to surprise and charm the listener.

The 405

Mole City is very much a double album though, and with 24 pieces over the course of an hour it has the feel of a band in overdrive, keen to release all their ideas at once.


With so much experience under their belts, it’s hardly surprising that Coomes and Weis continue to push themselves creatively and Mole City is ultimately a reflection of that.


There's little, if any, regard for structure or convention, meaning that 'Mole City' could be five tracks long or 50 and still happily exist in a brilliantly idiosyncratic bubble all of its own.

Consequence of Sound

On Mole City, Quasi embrace their scattered thoughts with a wink and a grin, and never let go.
