This is the second album from Molly Burch following the success of her Please Be Mine album with its smoky jazz inflected vocals which led her to tour with Grizzly Bear, Courtney Barnett and others. Now with man friend in tow she returns to the scene with an album in which she delivers her most intimate thoughts, carefully composed with a seething anger just below the surface.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 October 2018

The big question is how do Pitchfork cope? With so many singer songwriters that sound the same I mean.  One after the other it's been today, reasonably melodic, pretty nice variations on a theme. Molly Burch is another and she can be separated out by her slightly jazzy vocal style and almost French accented way of singing. Her songs her chirpy little ditties which have a lot of the song style and the trebly guitar sound of those of Mac de Marco. Opener 'Candy' is pretty nice with a quite lovely flowering chorus where you can see how she'd have done well as a non threatening aperitif for the Grizzly Bear main course at recent shows. 

But songs like 'Dangerous Place' are just a little too close to Jimmy Buffett territory for comfort. this is easy listening but not in a good way - it's all Hawaiian guitars, laid back beach vibes and sweet harmonies. Easy on the ear but you could hear this music played to pensioners on the veranda of a country club and you wouldn't know the difference. As Scott Miller said,  'Music  - What Happened'? 

Insubstantial, pleasant ear candy to put on when you don't want to listen to music.
