8/10 Dave Staff review, 07 April 2011
The new full lengther from these ultra cute San Franciscans is every bit as tuneful and jangly and sweet as apple pie. Dream Date are a three piece who dabble in an almost twee yet emotional sojourn through the mind and soul of chief singer lead guitarist Yea Ming Chen. It's got a touch of The Raincoats has this LP. It's laden with melodies and bittersweet harmonies. It has oodles of jangly guitars and hooks that you could land a huge fish with... Now that's what I call lazy a reviewing metaphor. The album has a lo-fi yet quite great production sound. You can really hear the scrape and rumble of the bands songs. The compositions are also pretty sweet. There are no guitar shredding solos or affected vocal histrionics. They also have eschewed any sort of drum solos, which for someone like myself who has been raised on a healthy diet of Bonham and Tommy Lee is a bit of a disappointment. Well you know you cant have everything. What you can have though is thirteen songs of pure sweetness from the most promising of indie rock bands. There are at least five or six songs that I would file under "top drawer"... Mebbe even top shelf (in this country anyway). All the other songs are also ace. I guess not putting all the songs in the top drawer does them a disservice but hey the drawers full, baby. I reckon this album would sit well in any indie rock fan's collection... Right next to their collection of teapots and cardigans. The twee fucks. (just kidding, it's good for morale). It's a rare delight. You should buy this.....
