EDITORS’ NOTES

"Say what it is... It's so impossible..." Pinegrove’s Evan Stephens Hall drawls on the album’s highlight track. The line’s meant as an examination of language’s intrinsic hardships, but it’s also an apt description of the record itself. Adopting genres and influences at will, Cardinal unfolds through lo-fi indie shouts, country twang, and chunky-riffed pop rock choruses. Each turn of phrase, guitar tone, and harmony feels delightfully stripped-down, comfortably unrushed, and well-lived-in.

Great Album

Reminds me of a mix between Matthew Sweet and Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes).

great album

From it’s amazing opener (breakout track “Old Friends”) this album offers just the right combination of joyful rock ’n roll and underlying melancholy that the best American music offers. A pleasure from start to finish.
