Tagged as a “Bay Area psych pop supergroup”, Agony Aunts live up to that description with the richly melodic concoctions of their upcoming full-length, Big Cinnamon. Built on the foundation of the Corner Laughers lineup, with guest contributions from members of the Orange Peels and the Loud Family, among others, Big Cinnamon piles on layers and layers of swirling, shining harmonics. The result is an album chock full of compositions that are sunny and fun, but shaded with enough poignance to linger around a little while.
Premiering here on PopMatters, Big Cinnamon is out this week via Mystery Lawn Music.
