After a number of different releases and years of touring, Montclair, New Jerseys Pinegrove have offered their finest work to date with their newest LP, Cardinal. The bands captivating blend of indie rock, pop and country elements is more vivid, fine-tuned, and addictive than ever before. Vocalist/guitarist Evan Stephens Hall along with brothers Zack Levine (drums) and Nick Levine (guitar) form a core that has been playing together since early childhood. Painting his emotions onto these songs with colorful and kinetic strokes, Hall moves through Cardinals eight songs with unforgettable energy and passion, with a vocal performance that is pleasantly reminiscent of Will Oldham and Built to Spills Doug Martsch. Highlighted by the downtrodden nostalgia of twangy opener Old Friends and the climactic refrain of Size of the Moon, where the confession I dont know what Im afraid of, is just as much of a sing-a-long as it is an emotional breakdown, moods dont stay in one place for very long on Cardinal - they are carefully crafted and revisited throughout to continually evoke the albums central themes of memory, language, and home.
