Fruit Bats is back on the scene after a five-year absence, and the new album Absolute Loser is a complete winner.

Paste Magazine has a review of the LP, saying that “anyone who’s tapped feet or nodded along to Fruit Bats in the past will find plenty to embrace” on the offering. The review praises the album’s opener, “From a Soon-to-be-Ghost Town” as “the new quintessential Fruit Bats song,” and also draws attention to standouts including “Humbug Mountain Song,” “None of Us,” “Good Will Come To You,” and “My Sweet Midwest.” Read the review right here.
