8/10 Mike Staff review, 17 April 2014

There’s a post-it on this one saying “‘97 math rock/twiddly post rock”, but thankfully an explanation is not needed today, for this is the long-awaited second album from post-Cap’n Jazz twinkledaddy pioneers Owls, aka Mike and Tim Kinsella with guitarist Victor Villareal and bassist Sam Zurick. I for one was under the impression that this lot kicked the bucket years ago - the first album came out in 2001 and the members have been keeping themselves perfectly busy with other projects.

Back they are, though, and ‘Two’ is actually very good, ‘This Must Be How...’, bang in the middle of the album, perfectly encapsulates what was great about the band to begin with; measured and busy guitar twinkling paired with a muscular rhythm section and distracted-sounding vocals that build a twisty-turny tension that’s very satisfying. They’re not exactly breaking new ground but the most convincing example of the late ‘90s midwestmo sound I’ve heard in a long time, miles better than that disappointing Braid comeback EP.
