The Apache Relay: The Apache Relay (2014)


The Apache Relay’s self-titled third album finds the band somewhat eschewing the more countrified aspects of their previous sound for a wall-of-reverb pop sheen more characteristic of Fleet Foxes or Yukon Blonde. Fittingly, they recorded in L.A. rather than Nashville this time around. And while the rustic roots still show, the more lush sound suits their more pronounced melodic pop leanings.

A few of these choruses are the real stick-in-the-head type.
