EDITORS’ NOTES

On a trip home to Alaska in 2016, frontman John Gourley stumbled upon his dad’s $8 Woodstock festival ticket stub. The discovery sparked an infatuation with ‘60s pop culture and its politically charged music. The band’s eighth album, a thrilling, gritty package of experimental pop-rock, is their take on music with a message. Loaded with deluxe production (thanks in part to Danger Mouse and Mike D), danceable energy (“Live in the Moment”), and poignant lyrics (“Noise Pollution”), it’s both a lively soundtrack to the resistance and a reminder to have fun.
