Saintseneca // Such Things by Alex Bieler

Such Things

Anti-

4.5/5 stars

Zac Little and his Saintseneca crew really have a knack for crafting absolutely infectious songs that crawl inside your head and burrow deep in your brain. The band came to my attention thanks to the wonderful Dark Arc – a release that was one of my favorite albums in 2014 – and hasn’t slowed down on its latest album Such Things. The new release’s 15 tracks are immediately accessible for those looking for delectable hooks and fun presentation, while other listeners will have a blast following each carefully-crafted line that parts from Little’s lips. Saintseneca doesn’t occupy a single genre, instead existing in a space where folk, punk, and early ‘90s alternative rock come together to create stompers like the title track or lovely, stripped-down tracks like “How Many Blankets Are In The World.” It all makes for an album that sticks with you long after the final track of Such Things ends. That is, if you can resist replaying it right away. — Alex Bieler
