Album Review: Into The Woods - Don Juan And The Jilted Lovers

"It's a pleasant way to spend 45 minutes."

The 'indie-pop' sound — think the jangly guitars of Bob Evans, the saccharine harmonies of Little Red and the innocence of San Cisco — has far from died; in fact, its position in the Australian musical landscape has solidified.

Melbourne group Into The Woods sit nicely in this listener-friendly genre, and this album is a perfect introduction for anyone looking for a way into it. Sonically it's more ambitious than their 2012 debut, Goldentone, with a hint of psychedelia and a dash of the blues thrown into the mix, and it's a pleasant way to spend 45 minutes.
