Indie rock with a poppy side and an edgy aftertaste is what Philadelphia, PA quartet Quips delivers on the 10-track TAKE TWO. From the lo-fi and breathy "Laray" to the translucent allure of "Over the Top", this crew demonstrates the unique ways they've unveiled to hop around genres, opting for QOTSA trippy hard rock vibes on "When Are We Going Home" while going for the delicate old-time back porch (complete with drum brushes) feel on "Alexander Hamilton". Musical explorations of the rock realm rarely sound as tight and render the memorable moments Quips manage to leave behind on this solid offering.
