Animals in Exile Share Western Gothic
I’ve really enjoyed spending the last few days listening to Western Gothic, the new EP from Denver’s Animals in Exile. The project has alluded to psychedelia throughout their three releases, but here we see the band peel back the weight of the genre to share in the more organic vibe that serves as the underbelly. Combine that delicate touch to Redding Bacon’s voice and you get a sound that falls somewhere between the Shins and the Clientele; they have this slight inclination towards melody, only blended with a willingness to journey into a greater expanse. Pretty solid way to sort of delve into a case of the Mondays.
