American Darlings - Afterglow - Cassette
Dig the legendary company the Big Takeover put American Darlings' new album, Afterglow, alongside...
'You’re Not Alone,' introduces a heretofore covert MBV/Brian Jonestown/BRMC construct without going full shoegaze; a few other songs sound like The Verve producing Alex Chilton, or Ultra Vivid Scene gone Pale Saints. Only 'Coming Back For More' directly rocks, though it’s the standout melody of the closing, beguiling 'Skyline' that's the super-gem—like the most honeydripped tune that Velvet Crush or Chicago’s Sam Vicari ever offered us. A song to swoon for—it’s what we all want.
Take their advice. Get it now!
You're Not Along / Slowly Show Me / Lonely-Hearted / Metamorphic Mind / Coming Back For More / Skyline
