i've been excited about this one since i first heard it a few months back. loss leader have delivered a mighty fine album here mixing up melodic emo and post punk styles with great effect. it reminds of all sorts without ever sounding specifically like anything. a bit of baton rouge, a bit of van pelt, a bit of 90s slowcore like seam, a bit of poppier late 90s emo. all of that comes together to form a fantastic release.
