SYNDICATE

MohawkLodgeWildfiresNote: Wildfires was produced by Daryl Neudorf, the producer of all of the Neko Case/Neko Case & Her Boyfriends albums.
Sound: Ryder Havdale’s achy and weathered moan details paranoia and cynicism over a mix of tense, pounding indie rock and breezy, reflective roots rock.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Heart of Lovers”; “Rising Sun”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Wildfires”; “Why Would You?”; “Timber”
Recommended: Wildfires is poorly sequenced. The first three tracks are some of the weakest, while most of the rest are highlights. So if you give it a chance to ramp up (or just start at track 4), fans of pained vocals/lyrics and a balance of bruising rhythms and forlorn tempos will find plenty to like.
Grade: B
