Pup Tent finds Luna breaking away from their signature dream pop ever so slightly, adding the occasional brass flourish and waves of loud guitar. The expansion isn't entirely successful, since it often seems forced and de-emphasizes the hazy melodic qualities that are the hallmark of Luna's best music. Even with the weaker moments, there are a number of fine songs on Pup Tent. It just takes a little effort to dig them out.
