Album Review

The title of Detroit-based Slumber Party's sophomore album accurately sums this one up nicely, as it comes across as both neo-psychedelic and somewhat delicate all at once, recalling the paisley underground revival pop of groups like Opal and Mazzy Star and the diaphanous harmonic filigree of outings by Denise James and Damon & Naomi. Producer Matthew Smith, allowing only moderate overdubbing here, polishes their somewhat naïve yet deceptively abstruse dream pop until it has a sophisticated sheen, still shining and dripping with soft reverb.
