Cloak­room’s “Time Well”:

Los Angeles Times - - SUNDAY CALENDAR -

With the ’90s re­vival al­ready in progress, this In­di­ana trio’s new al­bum (due Fri­day) de­serves no­tice for ex­pertly find­ing fresh new ground be­tween the churn of Clin­ton-era sludge rock and the down­cast, del­i­cate melodies that re­call fel­low Mid­west­ern­ers Hum. With a gui­tar churn that runs too low to be con­sid­ered among shoegaze re­vival­ists and too heavy to fit in with what­ever is left of so-called in­die rock th­ese days, Cloak­room may be the per­fect record for the dog days of sum­mer, when it feels like noth­ing moves quickly but there’s no deny­ing that colder, darker days are com­ing.
