It’s a little punk (but not too much), with some safe mall emo, a cheeky ’80s glam-rock solo or two that Weezer rejected, and plenty of studio sheen.
The Estonian group shamelessly blends the best of My Bloody Valentine, Lush, and Stereolab.

Perhaps better than any other Hush release, it illustrates the label’s “anti-rock” stance.
