Editors’ Notes

Chicago’s Radar Eyes are equal parts jangle-pop, shoegaze, psychedelia, and garage. If that’s not tantalizing enough for you, we also point out a few (albeit brief) moments of gritty punk edge, which erupt at critical moments on this debut full-length. The quartet excels at atmospheric constructs, layering glinting, gurgling keyboard notes over billowing My Bloody Valentine guitar washes, weaving reverb-dipped guitar jangle into an ominous bass line, and topping churchly, ‘60s-flavored organs with crisp tambourine notes and thumping floor toms. Opening with the rousing stomper “In Love,” the record moves through poppier terrain on “Miracle” and “I Am” (a tune deftly blending pop and shoegaze), barrels through garage-punk fumes on tracks like “Bear Bee” and “Secrets,” and brings on a Brian Jonestown Massacre daze with “Disconnection” and “Summer Chills.” Radar Eyes set the wayback machine to “gloom” on the album closer, “Side of the Road,” evoking both Ian Curtis and Suicide; the tune is a fine, dramatic exit from 35 minutes of exquisitely balanced melodic haze and feral rock ’n’ roll.
