Built Like Alaska
Hopalong (Sweat of the Alps)

By: Alex Steininger

Loose, fuzzy indie-rock and nestled, contemplative sweeping pop. Built Like Alaska's debut, Hopalong is a mature, diverse record that proves a weepy acoustic number can, and does, go well next to a bouncy, guitar-soaked rocker. The two sides of the band tug and pull at your emotions as you find yourself crying with them one minute, as you both share a smile and a laugh the next. At times majestic and other times dirty, the serene rock of Built Like Alaska mirrors the cold, light climate of the land in which is takes its name from. I'll give it a B+.
