4.0 excellentmanosg STAFF | June 7th 18

Listening to Wild Notion while a gentle summer breeze blows in through my open window is nothing short of a complete experience. Or is Wild Notion that summer breeze that carries with it images of past summers and summers to come? Night Flowers' debut is a solid dream pop affair not only because of its instrumentation and songwriting, but mostly due to the images, smells and feelings it evokes so vividly. And just like the summer, the album ends before you know it.

Kinda reminds me of a dreamier soccer mommy on one hand and Fazerdaze on the other. Several top-notch cuts here, but can't go wrong with "Sandcastles", "Unwound" or "Cruel Wind". Anytime you're feeling down, this will lift you right up with its accessible and warm melodies.

3.5 greatBedex | March 19th 20

I think I owe this a second listen to decide if it is upper 3.5 or lower 4.0. It is an album that takes a specific mood, and I found that mood more readily during the second half, so I perhaps underestimated the first half. The record walks the line between mildly annoying naivety and fun catchiness quite well, but not always perfectly. 1-2 are nice and catchy, but 3-5 felt quite naive. Oddly 5 evokes French songs from the 80s to me? After that the record brought it up a solid notch (but as I said maybe it was just me getting used to its atmosphere), as 6 has a very solid and jammy intro, 7 shows how the naive side can work by alternating the cute vox with rock vibes, 8 is beautiful in the right mood, and 9 is catchy too. The record does end on a lower note though, with 9 overextending a bit and 10 feeling merely ok. Gotta re-listen. 3.7
