Annuals: Be He Me
Buy! - (Ace Fu`)
This Raleigh, NC band offers up a sprawling, inventive debut album of epic folk-pop that takes in a dizzying variety of sounds. Dense production, intricate arrangements and a wide variety of instrumentation fail to obscure some magnificent songs reminiscent of both the freewheeling playfulness of Animal Collective and the anthemic power of the Arcade Fire. 10/11/2006 - Don Yates
