764-Hero: Salt Sinks & Sugar Floats

Salt Sinks & Sugar Floats

This album does sound suspiciously like a Built to Spill outtakes record. Maybe we can blame it on the Pacific Northwest, or maybe too many hours listening to their heroes. Whatever the case, this debut doesn’t go a long way to proving that a record full of shambling emo-like rambling can turn into solid songwriting and catchy hooks, but just wait a couple records and you’ll see. This is their “feeling-’em-out” record.
