Cotton Jones, 'Tall Hours in the Glowstream' (Suicide Squeeze)

6
Tall Hours in the Glowstream
Critical Mass
Label: Suicide Squeeze

by Josh Modell

The best parts of this boy-girl duo's second album sound like some obscure '50s act, the kind that ought to list "reverb" as a band member. "Song in Numbers" and "Man Climbs out of the Winter" stare gorgeously through Roy Orbison's Ray-Bans, deliberately dating themselves with vintage ghostly keyboards and distant drums. There's a hint of Animal Collective's retro-future haze during Glowstream's fleshier moments, like the lovely "Soft Mountain Shake," but mostly it's content to channel gauzy pop days gone by.
