Whilst we Northerners are still in a bit of confusion whether or not to grab a jacket in the morning, indie-rock group The Neighbourhood can feel free to sing to me about “Sweater Weather” even on the hottest of days.
The Los-Angeles based band released their 13-track newest album “I Love You” in April 2013 following up their album “I’m Sorry…” released in August 2012, “I Love You” features radio hit “Sweater Weather” which has over 6 million views and is on iTunes top 100 for featured songs.
Users on Metacritic.com gave “I Love You” a score of 6.9 out of 10 rating. Review complaints consisting mostly of amateur lyrics. Media critic magazine PopMatters gave the album a rating of 50 out of 100 saying the album was an “extremely flawed debut with good intentions.”
The NBHD has a consistent sound throughout the album, their hit song is not tweaked to appeal to their targeted demographic to draw them in to buying the album.
“I Love You” is highly recommended for various levels of activity ranging from background study music, music to make-out to, and car singing.
Ultimately, I dig it.
