Ralegh Long’s second full-length album Upwards of Summer marks a change of pace. The piano, strings and woodwind of his 2015 debut Hoverance are nowhere to be seen, exchanged for the jangle of chorus guitars, mandolins and anthemic hooks in a thrilling, confident album. Themes of freedom and frustration are wrapped in exhilarating power-pop with magnificently crafted arrangements, neatly combining the fragile pastoral beauty of his previous material with deliciously woozy psychedelic country-rock.
