    Mixing punk rock with cute pop, the Atlanta, Georgia, quartet are a fine addition to Slumberland's near-flawless roster.
  2. Are You Falling In Love? is a difficult record to dismiss, or forget.

    All waves of revivalism and nostalgia aside, Are You Falling Love? sounds like it was beamed in straight from 1993.

    With their reverence for the past and all things twee, C86, and noise pop related, Gold-Bears have their limitations, but luckily, they're already well versed in working their sweet spot.

    There's nothing new here, but much to love, and if "Tally" makes you think 10 songs by 10 other bands, that's only because it succeeds where they fell short.

    Emotion-wracked, ultra-melodic, and filled with jams (both fast and slow), this is an impressive debut from a band that could easily end up reaching some seriously lofty heights.

    Unfortunately, "Besides You" is the only song really worth mentioning. Everything else is so awash in a wall of buzzing noises, you'd think you were at the World Cup and surrounded by vuvuzelas.
