It’s hard to believe that Post Animal have been blowing minds with their incredible sound since 2014. The band has evolved over the years, transforming for this raw garage rock powerhouse to this hazy otherworldly psychedelic rock band that defies a singular sound. Especially with their latest release Love Gibberish, Post Animal has embraced the dizzying number of sonic comparisons and created one of their most kaleidoscope albums to date. Whether you were there from the start or jumped in during their rise, it impossible to deny Post Animal’s impressive catchiness and down right crazy ascent.
Love Gibberish is full of tracks that beckon back to the antithetic jams of yesteryear. There is so much going on in the album that it feels like a welcome history of the band influences. The five piece band embody Journey or Toto on “Cancer Moon” with elating results. Post Animal dips the song into a psychedelic dreamscape by the songs finish, giving it their powerful personal touch. “No More Sports” takes cues from hair-metal rockers with soaring guitar riffs that don’t quit. All these homages and allusions are not lost on the band as the music videos give the most obvious and knowing wink to their audience.
