NEW ALBUM SPOTLIGHT

MICHAELCRONIN_ABICUS

MICHAELCRONIN_ABICUSSinger-songwriter Mikal Cronin just released his sophomore record “MCII” a few months ago and its been glued to my ears ever since. Building on a perfect mix of garage rock, fuzzed out guitars & classic pop song writing, theres no doubt Mikal has matured as an artist since the release of his self titled debut record.

Opening tracks “Weight” & “Shout it Out” set the tone for most of the record, with breezy verses that explode into huge choruses, at times very reminiscent of band mate and fellow californian Ty Segall. But the biggest drawcard of this outstanding record is it’s diversity. Cronin’s ability to swiftly change from a sing-along pop tune to a sparse piano ballad proves the calibre of his talent as an artist. Earning himself rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork & Spin Magazine, Cronin is easily one of the most exciting new artists of this year!

We have a few copies on wax in-store right now so hurry in, they wont be round for much longer!

Daniel.
