This album picks up where “GT Ultra” left off, with Guerrilla Toss constantly pushing their sound further with cosmic rhythms and deep experiments into Pop’s darkest crevices. It’s got wild grooves, singalong choruses and some of Guerrilla Toss’s most colorful palettes yet. And hell yea, it’s exciting, most of Pop’s biggest acts right now, even in the weird areas, are just not this daring. This album is still far from perfect, and I still think ... read more

Oh my. The potential is so real. You know, this drives me nuts. When Pale Waves are on, they’re outdoing their contemporaries. Hell, in a lot of ways, I would rather listen to some of the singles here then the ones their buddies The 1975 have been dropping. But as this album unfolds it quickly becomes so obvious that Pale Waves lyrical arsenal is laughably thin. And more often than not, they just end up coming off like imitators. There are countless catchy choruses and throwback ... read more

This is probably the best sound we’re going to get from The Chills in 2018. This album isn’t terrible, and it has some of the better track from The Chills in years.

There will be totally compelling tracks lyrically and vocally which are muddled by clean production, and upbeat and exciting tracks that are brought down a peg by poor songwriting. It’s messy at ... read more

I can't help but be a little disappointed by this album.  Almost every single here sounded so vibrant and full of life, and there are a handful of tracks here that follow suit.   But there are way too many moments here where Ava Luna just come off as tame, or some random Indie Band trying to be a little more artsy.  Which is fine, but this isn't nearly as exciting and eccentric as some of their early work.

I don’t think this is nearly as timeless or as genre-defining as anything else in Jason Pierce’s discography. But, I think this is one of his most human, and in-the-moment releases to date. It’s an album of every human emotions in very surreal atmospheres. It’s an album of immense loneliness that finds beauty and love in places you wouldn’t. It’s hazy and often surreal, but it’s also incredibly colorful and beautiful. And if this truly is the last ... read more
