EP: Pope – Known Weed Smoker

Spring Break is over and it was very #blessed #sunny and #chill.  But it was not filled with very much new music listening.  Luckily the boys of acab rocky have our backs and suggested this New Orleans group.  Pope make 90s-tinged noise and slacker rock that is equal parts Built to Spill and Pavement styled nostalgia and post-punk bite.  The southern haze the hangs over the 6 tracks casts a distinctive flair to the group without hiding their genuine songwriting skills in a fuzzy mess.  It’s getting warmer outside and there isn’t much else I’d rather be listening to now.
