Still Don't Seem To Care

Album Review
Reviewed 2015-11-01
Described in general as trippy, psych, energetic. I would say it's most similar to Tame Impala, the bass player in this band is phenomenal. You can tell what songs they had a producer work with them on and the other tracks fall kinda flat as vocal phrasing is often poor and musical elements compete incoherently on many tracks.
Recommend: 2, 4, 9

1. mid-tempo rock swirl with vocal harmonizing, sounds influenced by early REM.
***2. Great bass hook, has dynamic quality in the composition, movement & great production. FAVE track.
3.mid-tempo, stripped down, has a pensive quality breaks into a cheesy pop song. I don't care for this track.
***4. Nice bass and driving guitars and drums, tight ride with feather-light male vocals, as you roll down the canyons.
*5. phlanged guitar, light male vocals which are folky & beachy with keyboard background.
6. more full sound with guitar and keyboard effects and percussive sounds could be full-on spooky 60's pop.. but unfortunately the vocal phrasing is off for me, doesn't go.
*7. Has cool percussive elements and starts slow with flute. Pop hook, like a slow Beach boys song. Vocal phrasing needs work again, more cohesive than 6.
8. Driving guitar takes the lead, vocal phrasing throws me again.
*9. Vocal texture, while the bass warms up the song and takes us places. A little too long, I took off a star for that.
*10. Slow song with reflective guitar, reminds me of the last Tame Impala record. But the vocal phrasing is more tired. Still has a cinematic quality to the music.
11. Again reminds me of Tame Impala, doesn't go anywhere but a short transition.
