The Velvet Teen have always been cool about sharing their deepest discontents, and it turns out the secret ain’t the riffs. On these lilting new tracks they nearly forgo guitars completely and opt for a baby grand just shy of overblown that helps Judah Nagler get in touch with his inner torch singer and they replace the riffs with a string section that gives “precious” a good name. But don’t worry, those signature keyboards and rhythms still sparkle like a sky full of shooting stars.

I love, love, LOVE this band. DIW brought them to my attention by describing them as Jeff Buckley meets early Radiohead. Their first LP hits it out of the park. Looking forward to catching them in Chicago!
