Long before indie rock was “in,” Starflyer 59 was carefully sculpting the genre with ethereal, left of the dial experiments that captivated an entire generation (or at least those in the know). On the band’s fourteenth studio album, the Jason Martin-led act not only returns to Tooth & Nail Records, but also turns in another textbook batch of its lo-fi atmospheres and melodic textures that could fit right in alongside any current band on Pitchfork’s tastemaking playlists. Lyrically speaking, the guys sound older, wiser and at their most reflective, sure to be another sticking point for their extremely dedicated fan base and also a thought-provoking entry point for the hipster kids coming up.
