Highway Hypnosis

(Merge)

Highway Hypnosis is the kind of record that club basements were made for. The experimental songs are quick—tailored for those who like a clear beat and have a short attention span. A few tracks sound somewhat predictable, but the collections takes a turn halfway through. In "Money Don't Grow On Trees," Sneaks (aka D.C.'s Eva Moolchan) repeats the title line over an eclectic mash-up of synth and percussion, creating a hook of sorts. The overall effect of the album is interesting ati-pop, though some might find the experience a bit distant and chilly. 3/5

Highway Hypnosis is out January 25, 2019.
