Album Review

Perfecting Loneliness finds Jets to Brazil continuing their trajectory from Jawbreaker to Orange Rhyming Dictionary to Four Cornered Night. With this outing, the band develops their folk-pop repertoire via a set of summer-tinged, bittersweet memories. With deeper instrumentation, undone piano melodies, and larger-than-life orchestration, Schwarzenbach and company manage to turn intimate observations into moments of transcendent grandeur — and while the album might not sound exactly like Nick Drake, the effect is the same.

But the final song, "Rocket Boy," is the most ambitious, and it will leave listeners welling up with nostalgia and yearning.
