Album Review
Reviewed 2014-03-20
Dreamy, slow, folky, lo-fi folk from Olympia WA. A cassette rip. Sleepy, atmospheric sounds, samples, layers - things blend into each other. Lots of appeals to nostalgia, some subtly stereolab or even mbv bits of electronics/mastering. 1-3 have comprehensible vocal narratives, 4-6 are more dreamy.
FCC clean

RIYL: The Pastels (their new stuff), Stereolab (their quiet stuff), Juliana Barwick

Side A
1. 2:08 Whispered vocals about the city of Olympia. Gentle synths and quietly twangy guitar.
2.* 2:53 Male and female vocals. Soft and pretty over amorphous guitars.
3.* 2:17 Wistful/documentary spoken word over twinkly guitar. Sleepy.
Side B
4.* 2:01 Simple vocals get lost in dreamy instruments
5. 2:28 Mellow beat/groove. A bit of stereolab-esque noodling.
6. 3:15 Some brief vocal samples. Lazy sleepy pretty
