On their ninth album, this New York trio – once swathed in moody synth layers and art-house dance beats – have pared down to their delicate, creaky bones. Barragán is haunted by the romantic split between singer-guitarists Kazu Makino and Amedeo Pace, most notably on the exes' spare, bewitching duet "Seven Two." The band is at its most magnetic on the single "No More Honey," where Makino warns, "I won't be sorry," in her lullaby-soft voice, just before Pace's shoegaze guitar sweeps her back in for a dreamy waltz. This record is the sound of what's left after a breakup: the push and pull of fragile and forceful, with all the veneers stripped completely away.
