AV Club Review
"Nintendo-synth hooks and John Hughes-soundtrack dynamism splash the songs with a kind of expertly crafted lushness"
Think of it as your favorite Nintendo game's soundtrack mixed with fuzzy guitars and lovelorn vocals. Spirit Youth is the Depreciation Guild's sophomore album, and it follows the group's style closely while reaching out to a new audience with even bigger hooks and poppier inflections.
"Their latest is ten tracks worth of gorgeous, wispy melodies embedded in layers of distorted bliss; clearly, ample attention was given to both songwriting and aesthetic, as the group excels in both areas." "Spirit Youth is an impeccably produced update on a timeless genre, an album that manages progressiveness while remaining appropriately grounded in the values of its predecessors."
