Infinite Arms (Fat Possum)


“Factory,” the opening track on Infinite Arms, is an elegantly swaying, melodic slow-dance that perfectly illustrates what’s to come: a series of soft rock, lighter-held-high anthems that are neither overly exciting nor are they too bland to be discarded. If “NW Apt.” is the album’s highlight, then “Blue Beard” is its worst offense. If any criticism can be levied its way, it is that Infinite Arms is a soft and lazy successor to similarly leaning dream-pop material, like Beach House’s Teen Dream.
