Hm cold would make much more sense to me...

Totally agree, it also sounds way more like "cold." Almost kills the emotion behind the line if it's actually "cool" imo, I was disappointed to read that.

Just looked around - I see mixed lyrics of "cool" and "cold." Hm

Yeah, I think that was the first place I saw it. Lame. Cold is better, haha.

Been talking about this album with a few buddies and your last paragraph is pretty much word for word what I told them. Haha. Nice review!

This is probably the longest review I've ever written and probably the second or third 9.5 I've ever given.

I had a lot to say about this album and could talk about it for days, so I tried to cut out all I could.

Also, pretty bummed I didn't get to see them at SXSW or with The Neighbourhood at Antones earlier this year. You get a chance to see them?

Unfortunately not. The one time this summer when I wasn't in Austin they were here. And then at SXSW all of their shows were badge or 21+ so I couldn't get in because no badge and only 19.

Excellent review, Ryan. I need to give this album more listens...it's definitely something special. Open the first two, there were definitely certain tracks that seemed to click with me more than others (especially the 80's-tinged numbers). Excited for this to click with me as a whole.

Nice review, Ryan! This record is like the music I always wanted to make, but just never did. I love it. Atmospheric and fun, but with a darker edge. You never mentioned "Settle Down," but that was a standout track for me--has the syncopated kind of funk that I dig so much. I've been playing their EPs nonstop for months and I'm so glad to have a proper LP to spin now -- especially since they kept randomly taking down EPs from iTunes ha!

Seems like I'm the only one who found this record boring. The first half of the album is the same song repeated over and over, while in the second half there are a couple good tunes (like Girls or Settle Down), but nothing so stunning in my opinion.
