Album Review

Similar in mood and texture to their 1999 debut A Wave to Make Friends, the Comas' follow-up will find favor with those who found the prior album pleasing, without offering any notable advances or variations. It's not the junkie music of groups like Mazzy Star — the pace isn't slow enough, the mood far lighter and sunnier — but there are some similarities in the lazy, hazy mood and evocative yet unspecific lyrics. When they rock out with a quick-tempo, guitar-fueled indie pop tune with indecipherable intercom-textured vocals on "Wicked Elm," it sounds uncharacteristic and, frankly, not nearly as impressive as their usual modus operandi.

Sometimes the lo-fi/experimental side of their ambitions comes to the fore, as in the goofily careening electronic washes and burbles of "Free Burritos." Music for lazy Sunday afternoons.

The Comas' respectable 1999 debut, Wave to Make Friends, was comprised of sleepy (but not lethargic) indie pop and off-kilter boy-and-girl vocal harmonies, courtesy of co-founders Andrew Herod and Nicole...
