    While nothing here qualifies as any kind of radical reinvention of the indie-rock wheel per se, the band manages to astutely put their own spin on it, seemingly figuring out their own sizable strengths in the process.

    With The Drop Beneath, Eternal Summers aren’t pushing the envelope in the same sense that some of their peers are, but that’s not a bad thing. They don’t need to.

    The Drop Beneath is the first record of their career that truly feels like the start of something special.

    The Drop Beneath takes their sound in a direction both more eclectic and more shoegazy than 2011’s excellent Correct Behavior, even occasionally straying into jangle-Cure territory.

    This is an LP that merits liberal use of the repeat button, and, even when it occasionally misfires, there’s always something interesting just around the corner, a fact that makes The Drop Beneath one of the most endearing albums to come out in the early part of 2014.

    The Drop Beneath is another strong step toward Eternal Summers being a band like Bettie or Velocity Girl, the kind that other bands will look to for inspiration 20 years later.

    Eternal Summers occasionally fade into their own dream on The Drop Beneath, but that’s understandable, as their dream has become far more captivating.

    The Drop Beneath is a little uneven, but it's engaging enough. [Jun/Jul 2014, p.95]
