Gold-Bears - Are You Falling In Love LP - Pink Vinyl
This record caught me by surprise. I wasn't familiar with the band at all, but I read a review that name dropped a lot of 90s bands that I like, so I decided to give it a shot. It doesn't disappoint. Now I'm not sure if I'd group this in with more direct 90s throwbacks like Yuck or Boat, but I guess it gets the comparison because it's actually upbeat and catchy indie rock. Maybe the new rule of thumbs should be if something doesn't sound dissonant and pretentious, you compare it to 90s bands like Built To Spill. Regardless, this is a very fun record that you should check out.
