This 2018 album is funky in all the right ways, with a generous helping of the experimental that breaks the tradition of indie rock-typical catchy guitar riffs and choruses. Catch “Jamais Vu,” for instance, a two-minute fully instrumental track with dreamy guitar effects that melt into a mountainous soundscape. “Righteous Stuff” is smooth jazz at its finest, while “Honey Leak” crafts a hypnotic, chill tempo out of soft R&B-laced rhythms.
