Portland, OR's dream-pop noisemakers, Point Juncture, WA unleash their third full-length effort entitled Handsome Orders
. Handsome Orders
was recorded and produced by the band over the winter months in the band's newly built home studio. The new album is a tour de force of songwriting and production, showcasing an impressive blend of fuzzed out bliss, beautiful boy-girl harmonies, and sublime melody. Handsome Orders
should more than satiate the fans of their 2009 critically acclaimed release Heart to Elk
. We've missed them too, and falling in love again never felt so good. The new record is available on both LP and CD with amazing artwork painstakingly handcrafted and assembled by the band.
The strong rhythmic focus surrounded by delicately unfolding atmospheric instrumentation seems to have roots in the Tortoise school of arranging. --Exclaim!
an abundance of sparkling melodies for a sound that recalls Yo La Tengo's assured eclecticism, Stereolab's stylish trance-rock and a host of distortion-happy shoegazer-pop bands. --Don Yates / KEXP
