"You never know what’s going to happen when you cue up a new Telyscopes album. Since 2012, frontman Jack Hubbell (multi-instrumentalist, compulsive creative, and home-studio mad scientist) has led the fervently weird experimental project through one reinvention after another; every record like another shed cocoon. Check the remains for cast-off bits of lo-fi psychedelia, flowery chamber pop, jazz, avant-garde, electronica--each assimilated at one time or other, as the ever-evolving creature that spells its name With a Y grew another set of legs, or a prettier pair of wings, or a sharper set of mandibles. Hubbell’s cast of collaborators is always in flux, but the lifeblood remains the same: offbeat lyrics and a striking sense of melody. It’s often ingenious--it’s never typical."
