EDITORS’ NOTES

The feelings of isolation and disenchantment Scott Hutchison suffered after moving from Glasgow to L.A. two years ago ring through his band’s fifth album. Co-produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner–who knows a thing or two about gently anthemic, adventurously textured alt-rock–Painting of a Panic Attack frames Hutchison’s anxieties within stately tapestries of soaring melodies, staccato rhythms, jagged riffs, and electronic flourishes. Venturing into shoegazing’s fluting hypnotics, the sweet sorrow of “Get Out” encapsulates the restraint that ensures everything here is emotionally charged without being overdramatic.
