Album Review: Going Going Gone by Mild High Club

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

So it's actually been five whole years since the last Mild High Club record, Skiptracing, and four since the collaborative LP with King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard (Sketches of Brunswick East). In the meantime, the man behind it all - Alex Brettin - has put together a collection of twelve tracks for this latest, Going Going Gone, and much of the material is as good or even better than anything he's put out to date. The usual influences are here in full-force - AOR, soft rock, yacht rock and trippy psychedelia - and you'll likely hear the same Mac Demarco-esque melange of white-boy soul coming out of your speakers that you've heard all along.

Opinion: Excellent

Welcome to the universe of Mild High Club, where nothing's quite as it seems. Previous records from the group led by Chicago's Alexander Brettin earned frequent justified comparisons to the work of Mac DeMacro but on 'Going Going Gone' - the outfit's fourth LP - that boundary is pushed further. There's still a bedrock of 1970s AOR filtered through wonky melodies and slightly distorted guitar, though this time they're joined by a smorgasbord of more outré themes.
