Might not be much more than some tight sounding sunny Aussie rock but honestly what more could you want in life?

You know when you find a band that's not really popular and you feel very good about yourself? Well, I don't know how much of my enjoyment of this album is influenced by that, but it's really really great.

This is the first record that I am hearing from the five-piece Austrian based band. This is their sophomore record on Sub Pop Records, and I am truly impressed with the band. The record is doused in lushes alternative rock instrumentation with jangle pop and indie rock soundscapes done throughout the whole project. There is no real bad track here, but none of the tracks fully stick out as truly spectacular. However, they do have a unique sound that allows them to stand out from the jangle pop and indie-pop scene. For example, their sound is much rawer and, in the moment, then a lot of artists today. In conclusion, I really like this, but there are a lot of limitations of the sound that is presented here, and again nothing on here is fully standout-ish. But, it deserves your attention if you are into this style or sound.

Stellar follow-up to the incredibly solid debut (one of 2018's biggest surprises for me). I don't know what it is about these guys. Yeah they're not reinventing the wheel but they know their way around a pop tune. Maybe some just hear innocuous jangly indie rock and I get that but I think that's an undersell. 'Sideways to New Italy' is full of tightly crafted, fleshed-out songs bursting with memorable hooks and lots of staying power.

A sideways move. Just a filler for more live songs. Good but.

Atm not enjoying this one as much as their previous album but still, there are some stellar tracks here with impeccable guitar work and, obviously, some good vibes~
