"Ratboys, 'GN'
This Chicago band calls its sound "post-country" but "cuddlecore country" might be a better way to sum up their mix of friendly guitar swirl and cozy jangle and twang. Julie Steiner's songs are full of shakily proud unburdenings and fun imagination. The gently rocking "Molly" gets big points for being about a person, not a drug (even if the Molly in question sounds like a bit of both); on "Elvis in the Freezer" horns and steel guitars stripe a goodbye to a beloved family pet; and "Crying About the Planets" is Pavement-worthy guitarscaping with lyrics about an Antarctic explorer that serve as a casual metaphor for real-li...fe peril and survival. A few songs here might've had a shot at alt-rock radio back in the old days but, like all the good neo-Nineties rock, GN reimagines that sound if bands back then never had to waste a second wondering if their dreams would eventually add up to owing some record company money. As Steiner sings on the dreamy, dyspeptic, Liz Phair-ian "Wandered," "rock & roll is my escape." Indeed, this works rock & roll's best myth: that the freedom to become whatever you are is all you're ever going to need."

/// Leggy ///

"Leggy’s 60’s lo-fi garage, surf rock paired with shimmering 50’s vocal melodies and modern-day pop influences carry over in songs like “Kick the Habit,” “Grrrls Like Us,” and the Lana Del Rey-inspired “Even Lana,” which references the pop singer’s song “Blue Jeans.” Campbell’s snare-dripped rhythm and Bladh’s harmonious bass equally match Allaer’s foggy guitar and urgent vocals throughout the album. Soaring from song to song, Leggy reimagines the ideal of amorous longing to a brighter, more self-sufficient state of adulthood while still poking some light fun at the helpless romantic in all of us."
