Enchanted Islands

03/24/2009 | | | Album Review
Beep Beep is a bit of an anomaly compared to the rest of the Saddle Creek roster--their angular guitar hooks and Chris Hughes's falsetto vocals set the band apart from the mold cast by label-mates like Rilo Kiley or Conor Oberst. On ENCHANTED ISLANDS, the band cleans up their chaotic sound, abandoning the trademark distortion in favor of cohesive melodies enhanced by intricate guitar noodling interspersed throughout the set. And while the tracks on ENCHANTED ISLANDS still eschew traditional verse-chorus song structures, the artfully haphazard arrangements are not without their charms.
