Album Review

"Endless Summer," Kentucky-based indie rock collective Follow the Train's leadoff track to Breath of Sigh, their debut for San Diego's Darla Records, sounds like just that, a sunset disappearing into the horizon viewed from the luxury of a beat-up convertible hugging the coast. This is dream pop in the vein of early-'90s 4AD bands like the Pale Saints and the Red House Painters with the cool, dark scent of the Church lingering behind it.

With a sound so steeped in post-punk, new wave, and college rock, it's hard not to name-check so many bands, and the group's penchant for reverbed-out midtempo revelry can get awfully sleepy, but when it works, like on the gorgeous "Kentucky" and "Afraid," it's like a gilded window to both the past and the future with the listener on the deciding end.
