    New York's Longwave made their name coming out of the same scene that sparked the successes of the Strokes and Interpol, but because their music didn't fit into as easy a retro-mold, they never scored the same level of popularity. This album, their fourth, further showcases what they do offer--a bright, shoegazey sound, remarkable chops, and a consistent facility with strong melodies. Shannon Ferguson's coiled, hollowed-out bass sound gives the songs some grounding, on which they layer slashing, spectral guitars and Steve Schlitz's almost-jaded yet still resilient vocals. On "No Direction" and a few other tracks, Longwave even throw in flashy guitar solos, just because they can.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (p.148) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hen Steve Schlitz's voice howls and cracks with emotion on the Echo & The Bunnymen-summoning 'No Direction,' Longwave's passion rings true."
    Magnet (p.114) - "The fourth LP from Longwave manages to be a great big sprawl of an album that never sounds too ambitious for its own good."
