    Fans of Death Cab and the Postal Service might notice a similarity between Angelakos' and Ben Gibbard's vocal styles. The six song EP features light, airy synths grounded in subtle new wave and pop grooves.
  2. Defined as much by its lyrical prism and Angelakos' falsetto (more on that later) as its gooey textures, Chunk of Change walks the line between beat-driven, Hot Chip floor geeking and twee atmospherics.
  3. This beatific bpmfest amps expectation giddily high for the Boston five-piece’s debut proper, and really is the gift that keeps on giving.
  4. Despite Chunk of Change's flaws, Angelakos shows real promise as an innovative electronic-song weaver.

    I honestly think it's nearly flawless. An excellent EP, erhaps one of the best, I've heard rivaling Of Montreal's Icons, Abstract Thee. FullI honestly think it's nearly flawless. An excellent EP, erhaps one of the best, I've heard rivaling Of Montreal's Icons, Abstract Thee. Full of pop-synth power, yet a tangible humanness, it provides a great listen. Nicely layered with several sounds that never appear to be too overbearing. Full Review »
