Record Review: Lab Partners — Seven Seas

Weekly music reviews.

Lab Partners
Seven Seas

Thanks to some recent attention from Pitchfork, the buzz surrounding Lab Partners is louder than a bee stuck in a megaphone. It’s not all empty hipster points and online platitudes, though; this band has a fuzz-fueled, spacey sound that envelopes and hypnotizes. There are nods to the past, sure, but this is a record that sounds very much in the now. The pop hooks and impossible-to-ignore melodies are epic, once your head manages to sort through the magnificent muddle of musical mush burying them. The rewards are so satisfying, that a little work is permissible.
