Descended Like Vultures

A-

Like their labelmates the Shins, Rogue Wave update ’60s British pop for blog-era tastes. The result is Descended Like Vultures, a swooning 40-minute album that ranges from shoe-gazing epics (”Publish My Love”) to whisper-quiet folk (”Temporary”). Don’t confuse mellow with soft, however. Zach Rogue’s high, gentle vocals and halcyon harmonies mask lyrics that are occasionally dark and cynical?but never mushy.
