It doesn’t get any more twee than Olympia, Washington’s Lake. And after 12 albums, the ensemble finally releases something on their hometown imprint K Records, delivering Oh, The Places We’ll Go.

But then you hear a track like “Dead Beat” or “Untitled” and come to the realization that this is an album for adults, albeit one with a sugary sweet epicenter that aims to strike that most vital chord with the inner child within us all. Recommended for hardcore twee birds only.
