    Needless to say, for a band only formed in January 2008, not only is this release very ambitious, but also well meticulously well crafted.

    A frequently startling record of no little beauty--which threatens to launch a new, esoteric generation of Williamsburg wonders.
  3. There's a gleefully fluid rock'n'roll dynamic driving this whole record, more evocative of modern-day US psychedelic reprobates The Dandy Warhols or The Brain Jonestown Massacre, rather than students trying to be clever.
  4. It’s all very lush and fabulous, but also restrained and calculated to the point of coldness. If that’s intentional, they’ve pulled it off, but not necessarily to the album’s benefit.
  5. Rewild is a decent debut album with enough promise to justify keeping a watchful eye for the future.
  6. The band batter you around the head with the kitchen sink in an attempt to get you to sit up and take notice, sometimes to the point where it simply gives you a headache.
  7. Rewild isn’t an amazing recording, but it is an ambitious one, if supernaturally shallow.

    Rewild is sophisticated, beautiful, mesmerizing. The more you listen, the more levels you find. Stunning.
