    Yawwwwwn. same old same old. i can understand how you might not want to sound clean when you make music like this, but to be outright and unabashedly lo-fi garbage is inexcusable. can we just be done with this era in music where critics are trying to impress bands trying to impress critics trying to impress bands? its getting really monotonous and stupid.

  1. The first couple times through Rejoicer, you might easily dismiss it as self-indulgent, unconstructed indie pop, lead by a pitch-uncertain singer with no great gift for catchy tunes. But after a half dozen listens, the album opens up, resolving its contradictions and bringing its juxtapositions into sharper focus.
  2. Rejoicer is a quality album with some especially strong tracks, but as much as it is refreshing to hear a relatively young band nail sounds from a previous era, the record is more enjoyable than it is interesting.
  3. The excellent Rejoicer is a 35-minute cruise through the backstreets of the Brooklyn rock scene and builds itself around an intriguing array of Moog synthesizers, manipulated pedal steel, and heaping spoonfuls of amplifier fuzz to craft some of the most exciting new sounds the Kings County has to offer.
