Celebration are Baltimore's prime psych-rock outfit, mixing in a bit of soul for good measure and playing with old-school keyboard sounds for fun. 'Albumin' is their first record upon signing for Bella Union, as well as being their first in four years. Led by the belting, unhindered voice of Katrina Ford, Celebration make climactic pop songs with slick guitar grooves and sparkly synths, and judging by "Tomorrow's Here Today", nothing much has changed.

8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 15 August 2014

The latest Celebration 'Albumin' is icumen in this week from Bella Union. This is a band who've already had releases on 4AD as well as previous incarnations Jaks and Lovelife on the likes of Troubleman, Jagjaguwar and Three One G. Not bad pedigree.

Here they're playing bouncy synth and electric guitar pop that's not a million miles away from Spoon, but with big soaring girl vocals that are almost like a much less depressed Zola Jesus or a less showboaty whatshername from Alabama Shakes. I'm particularly liking it when they let their '60s/'70s influences show like in 'Walk On' with its lovely plinky piano-led soul and ghostly organ wibble, or the laid-back boogie swagger of 'I Got Sol's Billy Gibbons-meets-Mark Knopfler riff (although that song does meander in a regrettably proggy direction later on). For the most part it's not just a clever name, this is forthright and celebratory soul-rock with big-throated vocals and bouncy melodies and confident performances.
