For my ears, Lately Kind of Yeah and evocations of nature come packaged as one, accompanying or even transcending literal lyrical interpretations or impressions one might scoop from track titles. Melodies plod like footsteps on dunes; guitar riffs swirl through crunching distortion like leaves in a windstorm. Looping vocals become the benevolent mantra of waves rolling against the shore, especially notable in the release’s centerpiece, “Zones” — let it wash over you.
