Charmed as hell by the juxtaposition of some extremely early Jebediah-sounding guitars and the lyrical references to Neutral Milk Hotel. Go full Mangum and get some damn Balkan horns in there!!

Whole song was good but couldn't keep my ears off that bass wriggling around in the background like a big ol worm. Big fan also of the general melancholy tone. Cool stuff

I bumped this track up a half star on the basis of how bratty it is. Brat factor high. Melodious power pop factor also high. What a combo

this is great. its got the best parts of soft rock - smooth, slinky & elegant - but it's not smarmy & gross. that's an achievement. it reminds me of destroyer, or a sexier midlake

Ace production! I love how you've torn up that smooth new r'n'b aesthetic a little bit - it's such a good sound anyway but it's awesome to hear you mess with the formula

Oh man I love the bass tones on this track. There's also a great '90s vibe to the track that somehow avoids being "retro" so extra kudos for that

Whoa this sounds like if the kid in Tron: Legacy set up a studio in Jeff Bridges' hideout and started a band with the computer chick. Pretty raw
