The Sour Notes

Last Looks

Since its 2008 debut, Austin dream poppers the Sour Notes have constantly charged forward. The band pauses to reflect with a reissue of its 2011 release Last Looks, expansive with grandiose pop like "Hot Pink Flares." Never indulgent, the tinkling vocals of Kelly DeWitt can lull you into complacency, but the Sour Notes also get sinister ("Nothing's More Contagious Than Evil"). Last Looks remains an apt survey of the group's progression over a swift four years, and an outlook to many more. ***.5
