Shout Out Louds - 'Optica'

Like warm mayonnaise, if that's your thing

Shout Out Louds - 'Optica'

Album Info

  • Release Date: April 29, 2013
  • Label: Merge
7 / 10 "Disney on drugs"? A record "like warm mayonnaise"? That's how Stockholm's Shout Out Louds are underselling their fourth album. Layers of psychedelic brass and pastoral strings create a psych-pop gateau of Tame Impala and The Shins on 'Sugar', while 'Illusions' oozes the gorgeous gang vibe of Metric or Grouplove. '14th Of July' is so Hurts it hurts, and 'Blue Ice' mimics Noah And The Whale's '80s AOR. It's delivered with panache, and come the warped sonic pop of 'Glasgow' and 'Circles' they're sounding, alright, not unlike bathing in warm mayonnaise. OK, at Disneyland. Yes, on drugs.
