Some dreamy indie pop with a healthy dose of shoegaze here from San Francisco. Or is it dreamy shoegaze with a healthy dose of indie pop? The cover of this one is very 90s 4AD which is a good indication as to some of their influences and there are strong Lush vibes to the airy vocals in particular. It's probably a bit more upbeat and spritely than Lush on the whole though. Highlights for me would be the brisk catchiness of "Time Is Weird" and the slower "(He's A) Vacuum Chamber" with its haunting refrain towards the end as it drifts away.
