You could say these songs are about re­la­tion­ships, but aren’t all pop songs? Pale Red’s sec­ond al­bum tends to fo­cus on the con­fus­ing parts of cou­pling, be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter: “I am just a stone for you, what­ever that means.” Dis­cov­ery is also front and cen­tre — fig­ur­ing out what’s pos­si­ble and find­ing out what one is ca­pa­ble of. Fran­tic de­liv­ery pre­vails on a few of these tracks, but for the most part, this is min­i­mal and me­thod­i­cal. Ul­ti­mately, it’s the mu­sic that sticks with you longer than the words; it’s unas­sum­ing, but hyp­notic. (All re­views by Scott Bryson)
