We all remember [perhaps not so lovingly] that standard "awkward phase" we all went through. If only Antennas Up had dropped their tributary new album back then, we may have mustered through with much more joy and optimism. The Awkward Phase offers up ten tracks of superb indie-rock, taking strong cues from electro-pop and turning quirkiness into something cool. They've also made sure each of these songs hold up distinct personalities and experiment with unique soundscapes. Highlights include the anthemic and hand-clappy "Coming On", the dreamy, reverb-laden "Wormholes", the ambient-induced "My Brain", and the sing-along ready "December" which you can grab for free. Spin the album's premiere in full, and be sure to grab it when it drops tomorrow [May 15].
