Boomkat Product Review:
Wheat are a band still best known for their Dave Fridmann-produced 2000 long-player Hope & Adams, an album featuring their career-defining 'Don't I Hold You' single, as recently revived by Cameron Crowe for his Elizabethtown soundtrack. This album comes after a few years in the wilderness after seeing major label deals fall through and founding band members leaving. Despite all that brouhaha the band have returned with a triumphant new take on their melancholic brand of college rock, which stripped of the fancy Dave Fridmann production sounds all the more vulnerable and intimate. The rawness of Scott Levesque's voice at the beginning of 'Little White Dove' almost spins out of control, but instead the track proves to be one of the finest here, getting the balance between the teetering grasp on the technicalities of recording and the honesty of emotion just right. 'Move = Move' is one of the catchiest, near-anthemic rock songs the band have penned to date, with a real winner of a chorus. Next up 'I Had Angels Watching Over Me' gets a bit chaotic but never at the expense of a rock solid sense of melody. It's great to have Wheat back in business and even better to hear them in such fine form.
