In 2010, Cults debuted with a two-sided, two-song single called Go Outside, which darkened the corners of the duo's cheery, harmony-loving pop ever so slightly. With the help of a Robert Longo press photo and a momentary air of mystery about exactly who they were, Cults felt like a sophisticated young indie band with aims higher than the buzz and bites of music blogs. Indeed, Cults eventually stepped out of the shadows and signed to Columbia Records, through which they released their self-titled LP last year. The full-length smears the spunkiness and sinister side of those first Cults' tunes until they go lifeless—hooks without engines or dimensions, waiting lazily for something more. Phil Spector did this stuff just fine; what's the point of revivalism if you can't take the goods to the next step? With Writer and Mrs. Magician. —Grayson Currin
