  2. 8.0 |   The 405

    Perhaps the relentless vitality and vibrancy of their sound might not be welcoming to all listeners, but for any willing to take the plunge into Althaea, there’s a whole alternate realm to be explored

  3. 7.4 |   Gig Soup

    Unerringly retro, Trailer Trash Tracys sophomore long player is awash with bright synth pads, electronic rhythms and undulating, fretless bass - it's an impressive recreation of a long gone sound that, by and large, leaves a positive impression

    Repeated listens yield lush details and neat little melodies, heightening the sense of a band dedicated to their craft

  5. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Althaea is far less idiosyncratic than you might expect. St Etienne after too many Manila Sunshines. Soothing music for a long flight

  10. 4.8 |   Earbuddy

    It’s all just safe like a cruise with no threats of pirate activity. However, it’s this safe, gentle style that renders the album somewhat boring
