iTunes Review

The eclectic debut of North Carolina’s indie-poppers Annuals, Be He Me, was a wild and multi-tentacled creation. Such Fun, the band’s follow-up, continues exploring a wide range of musical textures, but this time Annuals’ frontman and co-producer Adam Baker edits the whole affair to a more consistent and self-assured end.  “Hot Night Hounds” has an almost symphonic guitar structure in the first half, chords flittering like violin parts, while the second half showcases a little prog-rock sleight of hand. There are affectionate nods to countrified stylings on the rollicking “Dawn the Mountain,” replete with an urgent, giddy-up energy and lacy finger-picking, and on “Always Do” and “Blue Ridge,” where violins and steel guitar take the two-step down to a slow dance. The band’s fondness for chamber pop is exemplified on the string heavy “Wake” and the gorgeous “Springtime,” which starts as a sweet, idyllic soundtrack to budding love, but ends in a shimmering, joyful crescendo. Annuals still seem reluctant to follow a single path, and that alone can keep fans interested for the long haul.

Amazing

Awesome album top to bottom doesnt slack on any songs any good band's music changes through out their career I think the changes made from the last album "Be He Me" to this "Such Fun" are very good. Very impressive album

Check these guys out!

I was fortunate enough to first hear these guys live when they opened for Minus The Bear this year and they blew me away! When they played Hot Night Sounds I was sold and convinced this band is definitely going places and quick. They have so many layers to there music and you can find so many different aspects of how talented they are everytime you listen to a song. This album is definitely worth it and I look forward to further learning more and more about this truly unique band!

Slightly more polished...

I love the old album for what it is. This is a great album but can't be compared next to the prior work. It is what it is.
