We gave it a B

This ad hoc indie outfit, presided over by Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley and including members of Ozma, Arlo, and Azure Ray, has crafted an exquisitely sad album of country-tinged dream pop — imagine American Music Club’s Marc Eitzel leading a reformed Poco and you’ll get the idea. The mournful harmonies and orchestral sweetening on some tracks (”Don’t Get Your Hopes Up” features an actual trumpet solo!) spread a seductively decadent sheen over the oddly uplifting proceedings.
