an opus of sorts.

this is RkS’ best record yet. they combine many different genres into the music; namely: indie, rap, alt, southern rock, folk, american roots, psych-rock, and jam band playing. it is the breakout sound of a band evolving in real time.

with ‘how to: friend, love, freefall’, one can argue that Rainbow kitten Surprise are the single best indie group in north america, maybe even the world. it helps establish RkS as a premier band.

kero kero bonito prove they truly are well rested as they resume their indefinite prime.

“lamentations one” starts off as a dreamy, reflective piece with chimes and serenity. “lamentations two” is a surreal experience.

“lamentations three” is a droning and secluded song. it introduces a strings section amidst some extremely ambient atmospherics. “lamentations four” ... read more

the instrumental work is remarkable. the guitar sounds sticky and permeates through the music. meanwhile, the synths are calming, and they bestow some electronic aspects to the music.

there’s a comforting dreaminess present throughout ‘head of roses‘.

the album is a trip comprised of many different vibes:

“price of blue” conveys an indie-country combination. the solos are searing.

“and we're all just wearing bodies
like a costume 'til we die” is ... read more

Hey, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :))
