Oakdale, CA’s Built Like Alaska is ready to unleash their newest album, In Troubled Times, November 8 on the Future Farmer label. The first taste of that record is the track “Antique Love.”
There’s a sort of after-hours indie-rock feel here that has a Pacific Northwest folk vein running through it. I’m also struck by the subtle nods to 90’s indie-pop — the song shows a nice blend of influences without overtly copying anything. This is my first taste of Built Like Alaska, but based on “Antique Love” I think their record could be really excellent. With that in mind, make a note of November 8 and check out In Troubled Times in its entirety.
