This record is phenomenal. It is definitely a grower, but the more you listen to this album the more you truly feel like it is a complete album. It has bluesy indie rock such as "Arvydas Sabonis" and "Shannon" and catchy jams such as "Prozac Rock." But the truly seminal parts are usually when they dabble in dreamy chamber pop such as "A Journalist Falls in Love," "Ludlow Junk Hustle" and "Christ." If you can listen to any of those songs and not be affected, you might be a robot. Or maybe you love dubstep, I don't know.

"Rot Gut, Domestic" is the best combination of material that Richard and company have ever done. It combines all the best parts of each of their records with some really focused song-writing. Rot Gut is accessible without losing any of the intelligent lyrics.

It's a freakin' shame Pitchfork isn't fawning all over this band instead of some psych-pop band without any listenable songs, but that's a story for another day.

Get this album. Today. And while you're at it, make sure you grab "Fingertips," one of the b-sides. It's one of my favorite songs they've ever done.

One of the better releases of the year. Margot... are a great band and always fail to disappoint. This is their 4th full-length and has a heavier undertone than their debut (which is still their best album to date). More guitars and grittier production, still, Margot's main characteristics are in the beauty and catharsis of their lyrics and vocals and instrumentation.

I've been a fan of Margot for quite a few years, awesome album altogether. The sound is different compared to their usual tunes a little more hard hitting and grungy sounding (dare I say pop) but as stated nonetheless awesome!

I'll be honest. I've listened to Margot since their first album. I'm from Indy and wanted to know what they were all about. I liked their first two albums. I thought they were really good, but I wasn't blown away. I stopped listening to them, kind of forgot about them what with life and all and didn't buy their next albums. Happened to be in Indy and saw a free concert in Fountain Square with Margot (Aug 2012). Went with my sister and heard all of their new stuff. Thought I'd buy Rot Gut because I was literally blown away by every song I heard at the concert, even though I had never heard most of them. Actually, the best concert I've been to since I saw The Pixies live in 2004.

Anyways, that's all just background. This album is outstanding. The melodies are haunting with just a hint of sweetness (in the typical Margot fashion), but they bring the grungy angst/ power/ feeling they were missing before. The lyrics are haunting, poignant, real. I totally consider this to be grunge-pop-folk-perfection. I love it, love this band, and hope you will too.

**Everytime I listen to this album I'm back with my sister in Fountain Square with a PBR about 5 feet away from the band listening to the play these songs for the first time.
