Evangelicals - The Evening Descends (****)

Second and best record from the Oklahoma psych-pop practitioners. One of the young year's most painstakingly assembled jigsaw puzzles of odd noises, pop melodies, falsetto vocals and head-spinning wordplay. The Evening Descends is over-the-top and overblown in the best way possible.

Highlights: "Midnight Vignette", "Skeleton Man", "Stoned Again", "Paperback Suicide"

RIYL: The Flaming Lips, Grandaddy, Queen, Broken Social Scene

Video - "Skeleton Man"

"Paperback Suicide"

"Stoned Again"

"Here in the Deadlights"
