9 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Iration mash up reggae and alt-rock, and the combination is delightfully askew. On opener "Reelin," the rhythm section falls into a heavy dub groove while a distorted guitar solos between verses. One song later, "Stay Awake" flips the script, laying down strummed ska upstrokes while the drums shuffle out a crisp, sturdy breakbeat. The friction gives this otherwise easygoing music an unexpected edge, and singer Micah Pueschel threads any loose ends with a gentle coo that makes electro experiments like "867" sound natural.
