4.0 excellentnotkanyewest | April 18th 16

A great return to form after "Sunbathing Animal", which got bogged down in it's attempts (successful, mind you) to win over the hearts and minds of indie critics, and "Content Nausea"/"Monastic Living", which got bogged down in it's attempts (successful, mind you) to put those critics back on their heels. Here, they go back to the sparse, acerbic punk and intimate balladry that put got those dumb NYC writers to pay attention to them in the first place, where it turns out, no frills are necessary.

Completely shocked that this does still not have a review. And, a 3.5? Yikes. Thought Sputnik was tuned into this scene a bit more. Great album, great band - can't wait for more.

band are the very definition of a 3.5/5.. which in the grand scheme of things musical, is a grand time..

3.5 greatTheManMachine | May 18th 16

With anxiety slightly demoted and speed-punk frenzies progressively perishing, this set of scuzzy yet ripe divergencies shuffle forth; showcasing their versatility, upping the songcraft a bit, and standing firm in the face of some sorta semi-composure. I mean, they still oft-sing in the coalescent realm of deadpan/sarcastic/bewildered and stick 'round the garage and throw down "I Was Just Here" and envisage how much dust is actually all up in our grill at any given time, but this is for sure maturation. Which I'll take over the smoke-screen Monastic Living EP any day, but the freak in me does yearn for that ol' furor now and again. O and I'll take the bonus/untraditionally meditative "Already Dead" as album ender over the standard/somnolent sufficiency of "It's Gonna Happen" any day too, thanx very much.

4.0 excellentEbola | April 13th 16

This shit is so good, holy balls. Kinda got a Cake-esque quirkiness with more of a punky vibe. Killer stuff.
