Apartment Life draws from a number of influences, yet it always comes across fresh and tasteful in its adaptation of styles. The opening track, "The Best Thing", chugs along with rippling atmospherics, and threatens to lull you to sleep until the punk-ish guitar attack that is clearly derived from the Pixies loud soft dynamics. Mid-album stand out "You Don't Know Anything" comes off like a My Bloody Valentine song with intelligible vocals, with a sliding, reverb heavy hook and pummeling drums

Apartment Life Album Cover Art. Cover Art.
Apartment Life brims with Ivy's sophisticated songs: "The Best Thing," "I Get the Message," and "This Is the Day" all swing with a continental flair. But don't be fooled, this is not a sugar-soaked cache by any means. Durand's cynicism is front and center on "Quick, Painless, & Easy," showing the band doesn't live in a rose-tinted world. This is a great album. If you're like me, and got into Ivy with Long Distance, this will be a good addition. A bit more raw than Long Distance, but def worth the price.
