We gave it an A-

As a member of Beachwood Sparks, Christopher Gunst makes psychedelic country as light as a fluffy cloud. On the hazily gorgeous debut of his band MCOM, Gunst is still spinning ice cream castles from reverb-drenched drums and whimsical F/X, but it’s more Elliott Smith than Gram Parsons: Fey double-tracked vocals and ambling acoustic guitars languorously tumble over arrangements that gently rumble and churn.
