    Roosevelt listens less like a dynamic pop album and more like a static soundtrack that only becomes more and more significant as time goes on.

    Given the album’s August release date, this is one of the nearly perfect LPs for the last few hazy weeks of a brilliant summer.

    More often than not, his debut is one that gives any room a light up disco floor, makes any moment a reason to escape to the Ibiza nightclub in your mind.

    Every song on the record contributes to this air of reverie, a testament to Roosevelt’s strength as a producer, as one track languidly slips into the next. If anything, it can get a little too laid back--it’s the kind of record that's so uniform it ends before you realize it.

    There are few surprises in Roosevelt's brand of dance music, but that seems decidedly the point; the synapses it triggers feel like the most welcomingly comfortable sort of sparks, firing on familiar-but-welcome cylinders.

    On the whole, while the album lacks a certain distinctiveness (Lauber's vocals mostly blend, too), there's strength in its solid core and easygoing vibe.

    It is a solid and adept demonstration of his strengths as a dance producer and his ear for a hook. Roosevelt is intended to pacify the annual, somber, post-festival comedown. Every now and then, we just have to enjoy it simply for what it is, and not what it may lack.

    I think Roosevelt shows up here his talent as producer and as a musician, creating this vibe that is kinda unique to his music, with everyI think Roosevelt shows up here his talent as producer and as a musician, creating this vibe that is kinda unique to his music, with every song, it feels that is a production as a whole, just not separated bits that join together in an LP.
