"From the very first bass note to the final onslaught of guitar solos, Candy Cigarettes shows complete irreverence towards single genres, by throwing them all together across ten magnificent tracks. It’s malleable to literally any type of guitar music, perfectly adapting towards country, dream pop and classic rock all in one. It’s tangible to the point, where even this download only album, holds as much power, joy and an emotional attachment as a vinyl record does. It’s truly a moment in history, not just 2016."

Candy Cigarettes dropped his debut full-length this past May, which is one of the more impressive introductions this year. The Portland-based act shows both a grasp for captivating atmosphere (the sweeping spaciousness of “Tidal Wave In My Arms”, the nonchalant Real Estate-like cool of “BackSeat”) and immediate hooks, evident here with “MY 45”

On a self titled debut album, Mueller has created an album that is drenched in atmosphere, melody, and a wonderful sense of ease. Taking cues from the lo-fi work of Jeff Mangum and Jeff Tweedy with a little hint of British Invasion, Mueller writes relatively short alt country/indie rock tracks that range from the upbeat ‘My 45’ and ‘The Party’s Almost Over’ to the more reflective and restrained ‘Sweet Love’ and ‘BackSeat’.
