Flags for Unknown Territories Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

Flags for Unknown Territories moves on from the dreamy wash of Saturnine's earlier work, and steps into slightly more pop territory -- early REM is a semi-suitable reference point ("Ivan Boesky"), but the record's light drums, ringing guitar arpeggios, and sing-song melodies tend to be far gentler and more subliminal, and a charming indie simplicity makes the whole thing work beautifully. It may be less obviously dreamy than releases like Wreck at Pillar Point, but it's as incredibly pretty as anything the band has done.
