Yay, the second part to this album is out! I loved the first five-song installment (see review: Be warned, shoegazers: Part Two is a more upbeat affair.

This EP starts off with the lo-fi psych-pop from Part One, which combines aspects of Lykke Li, LCD Soundsystem, Panda Riot, and Hundred in the Hands. But I actually prefer the other three tracks, which are uncharacteristically rockin’. Live drums, strings, and more soaring vocals breathe life into a sound that can sometimes be too detached and chilly (The xx, I’m looking at you).

Bottom Line: Nice mix of lo-fi and livelier indie pop.
Notable Tracks: Lemoncholic, Ownsome, Prussian Blue (hopefully not about the white supremacist band)
Overall Rating:
