Here’s what folks have been saying about Pop Guilt:
“‘Ghosts’ is a slow burner with harmonies so fluid, you’ll find your ears happily lost somewhere between the two singer’s voices. Beau Cole and Caleb Moore have a way of making a rather ugly and unwelcome emotion like angst feel quite beautiful and comforting.” - Impose
“With a lineup shift, better production and further mastery of their tools, they’ve gone on to create some of the year’s more interesting, dynamic experimental pop music on their debut, Pop Guilt.” — I Guess I’m Floating
“The most captivating breakup stories are delivered with spite, suspense, and, hopefully, a sense of humor, so when Lands & Peoples’ Caleb Moore decided to inscribe his, based on a relationship that simply fizzled out, he reached to Terminator 2: Judgment Day for inspiration. ‘I Tried,’ which appears on the Baltimore duo’s debut Pop Guilt, draws from the rhythm of Terminator’s main theme, with a swelling synth line and stuttering percussion. Moore’s peppered vocals– with backup assistance from bandmate Beauregard Cole– have a tinge of revenge in them too when he sings ‘he can’t replace me.’ ‘I Tried,’ is aware of its hyperbole though and, like Terminator, feeds off of its absurdity.” — MTV Hive
“…a near-perfect blend of pitches, pitfalls, and percussion.” — Dead Horse March
