Evolution is a tricky word when discussing current trends in music, especially when it comes to sophomore albums. The critically lauded Blouse, the 2011 debut from the Portland band of the same name, was a lush, melodic and dreamy affair spiked with whoozy synths and delicate vocals. For Imperium, their 2nd LP for Captured Tracks, Blouse have shed the synths and wrote and recorded with "instruments that don't plug into the wall," as enforced by band member/producer Jacob Portrait. In a "Feeling Like This" describes it perfectly; it's a strange place that you're weirdly familiar with. Warm, but also kind of spooky and imposing, you want to stay there for longer than you're invited. Thankfully, it's ok to flip it over and listen to it again.
