The next wave of psych pop has arrived from Indianapolis in the form of S.M. Wolf, and they’re playing us right into the weekend with their latest laid back jam. “The Station” calls back to the earlier, simpler days of indie rock in all its charm sans pretense, bringing with it hints of sleeved tricks from a band in love with its fans. Cut from their forthcoming LP, which was recorded on 8-track reel to reel (how cool is that?), this early taste of their sophomore work slowly drops the fuzz-driven aesthetic of its predecessors. <Bad Ocean is out June 1st on People In A Position To Know, available digitally as well as on vinyl. Always get the vinyl.
