I’m not 100% sure what’s left to say about Gold Past Life, the new Fruit Bats album, that I don’t say in my review. Maybe, I’ll allow, I’m just plain old wrong thinking of it as a stealth ode to Michigan, though I’m only going to allow that so much; there’re way too many Wolverine State references in here to be coincidental. (Did you know Michigan is one of the few states in the U.S. that I haven’t visited? Now you do. Now you also believe me when I say I don’t have much else to add here.)
