If you missed it, listen to their exclusive mix for FADER.

Critics have weighed in on the new release:

“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”

The FADER

“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”

Pitchfork

“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”
