It has been more than a year since we’ve heard anything new from American Wolf. Last time around they dropped Myriad and it was very low key Silversun Pickups with songs that went on for miles. This time around things are more or less the same only even more so like a dream in slow motion with My Main Sport.
Right when “Our Weight” started I jotted down “if Coheed and Cambria mated with Bjork.” After a couple runs that sentiment still holds true. You have that falsetto voice being dispersed in music that has a very dream like state. That’s the whole record though. Every song has its own story to tell but overall the sound remains the same. You’re on one long train ride and tracks like “My Main Sport” and “Cave Fantasy” are your pillows – set for comfort. See, what is good about songs like these is they put you at ease while still remaining interesting.
They say they’re dream pop, I’d say more dream alternative but nevertheless you have a key word in each that really allows you to grasp what this record is all about. It’s creating this musical universe where things are a little fuzzy and things move at their own pace. If you like artists like well, obviously Silversun Pickups then you’ll likely want to check out what American Wolf is all about. How do you do that? Well by picking up My Main Sport, out now.
