cronin steps momentarily away from orange county surf-punk bashers, the moonhearts, with his debut solo lp.

mikal's solo debut is fully realised, cohesive & beautiful, with themes that are as personal as they are universal, questioning the future, accepting the past & living in the moment. taking influences such as the late 60s del shannon & the everly brothers & filtering them through his own mutant, californian fuzz, mikal deftly explores his singer-songwriter side that at moments feels like a punk harry nilsson or curt boettcher, balancing sweet melodies & chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freakouts. “the songs kick hardest when those melancholy sentiments collide with his crunching, chugging psychedelic urges, when the volume is blasting in both the amps & the emotions.” 8/10 – pitchfork.
