Running away to neo-retro pop bliss
2011 | Label: ITNO/Columbia

Cults aren't the first group to rise from anonymity to buzz-band status, and they certainly won't be the last. More remarkable than how Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion crashed the major-label party, however, is the distinctive neo-retro pop style they've brought along with them. Borne partly out of a youth spent listening to an especially eclectic oldies station and a nine-hour drive bonding as a couple over an iPod stacked with Lesley Gore, … read more »

Catchy As You'll Find

DudeItsHardArt

To me, doo wop is, and always will be the epitome of pop music. That said, this doo wop-infused pop is the perfect summer soundtrack. If you like catchy music that you'll be the first of your friends to know about--this is the album for you. Also, if you're thinking "I don't like catchy music", you're lying to yourself. That's why it's catchy: it has a broad appeal to the human ear. Now get it and enjoy, ALRIGHT?!

THIS IS FUN

briczar

the Sleigh Bells release (to which this is compared) is an overproduced mess of nasty noise... THIS... is the sound of what Sleigh Bells should wish they sound like... this and Best Coast... great stuff!

I actually haven't listened to this album. But I'm intensely curious now that I read Mr. Hogan's impeccable review. Seriously, that guy knows his stuff. Shout out from BK!

Who Are…Cults

By Marc Hogan, Contributor

If people join cults to escape adulthood, what Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion started looks like an exception. A little more than a year ago, the Cults leaders — who met when both lived in San Diego and then, later, moved to New York — were just a couple of 21-year-old film students haphazardly posting a few demos online. Now they're major-label artists promoting a hotly-anticipated album, with all the grown-up demands that entails: constant… more »
