Calico Review


'Calico Review' shows a band that's grown confident enough in its own style to reflect the perspectives of each member, and craft an album that changes up the approach from song-to-song, while retaining their abilities as a cohesive unit. 'Strange Heat,' reflects a control and character that burns off of the band's knack for restraint. Songs like 'Famous Phone Figure' cradle character sketches over delicate strains of violin, organ, and Mellotron, Matthew Correia's drumming carefully underlining a three-note theme that casts a phantom sadness over the proceedings, the group exerting a touch both light and steady enough to bring your mood to theirs. 'Could Be You' works off a steady percussive gallop, guitarist Miles Michaud waxing reflexively on second chances while the band focuses on forward motion. 'Roadside Memorial' applies the Bo Diddley beat to the open road, Pedrum Siadatian stepping up on vocals, and finding new ways to match his talents to propulsive musical ends. Elsewhere, 'High and Dry,' features Correia on lead vocals, focusing on their most quintessential and peerless quality writing emotionally resonant pop, at once direct and detached, casual and knowing, and instantly memorable. The dream factory itself gets called out in the fun, surf-stung number '200 South La Brea,' its carnival-like atmosphere reflecting the excitement and anxiety of those who await their judgment.
