Down in Heaven, is a distinct change of pace from the riotously punky drive of the Chicago band’s earlier releases. The guitars are less distorted and more jangling and poppy on such tracks as “Walk to the One You Love” and “Holding Roses” as lead singer Cadien Lake James contrasts the melodic settings with snarling garage-rock vocals. Twin Peaks revisit some of their punk past on the rambunctious “Butterfly,” but they also take a digression into folk-pop strumming on “My Boys,” which recalls the more rustic side of The Kinks. Hinds come all the way from Madrid but most of their fuzzy garage-pop songs are sung in English, apart from the occasional Spanish-language ditty. Even with their retro influences, Hinds craft their own sweetly cracked, lo-fi spin on garage nostalgia.
