How Far
(Arrowhawk Records & Crystal Palace Records)

Growing up is hard to do, but Deadbeat Beat makes anxiety sound so good. This garage-rock throwback from high-school besties Maria Nuccilli, Alex Glendening, and Zak Frieling is full of total freakouts ranging from the sweet hi-hat-assisted crooner "From What I Can Tell" to the rowdy strummer "You Lift Me Up" about an emotionally manipulative relationship on the outs. But the Detroit trio is in full-on panic mode on the eight-minute "Tree, Grass & Stone," which will make you want to hit that vape pen and enjoy the ride, no matter how far out they take you. (4/5)
