Amoeba Review

09/13/2017

Rostam Batmanglij moves away from the characteristic sounds of his former band Vampire Weekend on his solo debut, Half-Light. The new album seems more in debt to dream pop and the swirling, hazy lo-fi electronica of the early 2010s than the upbeat indie pop meets Afrobeat stylings of Vampire Weekend; Batmanglij handles this new sonic territory deftly. A couple examples: “Bike Dream” is (fittingly) dreamy and sweet, while “Wood” benefits from the atmospheric pairing of sitar and strings. These are just two standout tracks, but really, the whole album flows together gorgeously to create a very impressive, lovely work of art.
