floral print - floral print EP Music Album Reviews

On their second EP, the Atlanta trio swirls post-punk, drone, and math rock into self-described “deconstructionist pop.”

Atlanta rock trio floral print want you to know they’re not interested in writing songs that follow familiar patterns or linear progressions. Even their Bandcamp tags, including “bipolar” and “happy sad,” are direct—if somewhat crass—indications of their intent to present contrasts as compliments. For the most part, floral print’s self-titled second EP—which follows 2017’s full-length debut, mirror stages—satisfies their capriciousness. Frontman Nathan Springer, keyboardist/drummer Paul DeMerritt, and bassist Joshua Pittman swirl post-punk, drone, and math rock into self-described “deconstructionist pop” that grants them the flexibility to shapeshift through a collaborative songwriting process born primarily from jam sessions.


Opener “six pillows” introduces the EP with multiple false starts, repeatedly curling in on itself and revving back up again. Even as a series of tight drum fills takes over, it sounds as though floral print are stumbling over their own feet. But as the song progresses, it begins to invoke the victory of standing up again after each fall. “You’ve been fucking with my head/In a good way,” Springer sings, suggesting floral print might be trying the same trick on you.

A sparse slowcore intro gradually gathers speed on lead single “i go down on the breeze,” before crashing into a single-word chorus of noisy guitars: “Carry!” Springer yells to a partner who’s drifting out of reach, “He won’t need you the way I do.” As the track fluctuates in tempo and time signature, the lyrics are equally disjointed: “I can't stand when you fall/Keep it all on track, let the reel of film recall/Break my hands, yes I do/It's not a lie if I can see right through.” Alone, each line feels like the beginning of a separate thought; strung together, they make even less sense.

Though there are fascinating rhythmic intricacies in floral print’s songwriting, the EP rarely accomplishes the profundity it seems to aim for. “Pardon my ailment/I can’t love you… I wanted to show you all the things that we could be/If you were patient with the cutting parts of me,” Springer sings on closer “viridian,” stifling some of floral print’s most vibrant instrumentals with a self-incriminating admission of undateability. Promising when not obscured by artificial depth, floral print presents the case for an ardent young band in pursuit of something greater than themselves. They’ve yet to clue us in to what that might be; maybe they don’t know, either.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review: Hands-on

Thanks to a plus model, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the big Samsung phone you've been waiting a long time for. Find out why in our hands-on review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone. This is largely due to tiny bezels and the punch-hole camera.
Based on some hands-on time, we love it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

For the first time ever, there's a plus model of Samsung's S Pen smartphone. Here's why you'll want the Galaxy Note 10+ if you like having extras.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device.
There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However, many of the new features are gimmicky and we imagine some users will be distraught at the removal of the headphone jack.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

Samsung had shaken thing up and you can now choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, but which is the best phone for you? We compare them to help you decide.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Or Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
While the Galaxy Note 10 models share many specs and design features it's pretty clear who each one will appeal to.
If you've been longing for a Note in a more manageable size, then the regular Note 10 is exactly what you've been waiting for. However, if you want the biggest screen possible along with some extra specs like more memory, storage, microSD card slot, extra sensors and a bigger battery then the Note 10+ is your best mate.
