Capturing a perfect mix of shambling, Nuggets-era garage rock and skuzzy/heroic 90’s lo-fi, Antiques upcoming JWNS is easily one of the better records I’ve heard over the past few weeks. While it’s the Brooklyn/Cambridge/Abilene band’s 4th full length, JWNS is the first to find these ears and has been playing on repeat for a few hours now. As the band says, it’s “Our attempt at the epic garage album. Mostly about misanthropy.” And it works from start to finish – these guys know how to work slow building ballads, tense rockers, and shoestring anthems – making for a record that simultaneously feels cohesive and ready to fall apart at the seams. JWNS drops June 28.
