Album Review: Good Living Is Coming for You by Sweeping Promises

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

No Ripcord - 80
Based on rating 8/10

It's a story told often: bands finding their identity using minimal resources, from recording in basements and bathrooms to using single microphone setups, intent on creating a sound out of necessity. Sweeping Promises follows a similar path with their homegrown lo-fi, which teeters between deliberate and spontaneous, packing a hook-filled mix of exuberant anthems that feel bigger than they are. Their recording aesthetic doesn't even obscure what might initially seem like deficiencies; it's not like they raise the fuzz either, and that grainier filter ends up resonating in a good, if slightly uncomfortable, way.
