the finale of indie boy august has arrived! buck's album is a pleasant listen front-to-back, with its fair share of standouts. the title track and "lullabies" are squarely my favorites, followed closely by "paradise." didn't blow me away as whole, but it didn't give me much to complain about either lol

the sound of this record is beautiful. i hear a bit of 70's soft rock influence in a lot of the instrumental arrangements, but paired with that super close-up, densely-layered indie pop/rock vocal style that's become popular lately. weirdly, it feels sorta like an intersection between weyes blood's recent stuff and the band slow pulp, which i never would have expected to work. i'm glad i checked this out.
