    Looking to expand their sound beyond the medium-fidelity shoegaze of their excellent debut album, 2009's The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, the band worked with Flood (whose previous clients include Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, and U2) and old-school shoegaze/noise pop mixer Alan Moulder. Unsurprisingly, Belong has the sonic qualities of a classic early-'90s alt-rock album. It also has the high-quality songwriting and energetic performances that made the debut so satisfying.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.74) - "Frontman Kip Berman's guitars get the arena shoegaze treatment...with stack of black-hole implosions and whale-moaning riffs."
    Alternative Press (p.118) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[S]lick, unrelenting post-punk....Polished studio effects notwithstanding, BELONG's truest charms remain the songs themselves."
    Billboard (p.28) - "The band has pulled on some boots and leather pants, toning down the twee and slowing down the tempos, making the hooks bigger and letting the riffs linger."
