No Sleep Records has put out some quality stuff these past few years. They find little gems and maximize their sound, guiding them along the way to channel music that really shouldn't be missed. There's a nice mainstream and marketable feel to so many of their bands yet the indie/DIY aspect is very much present. Lee Corey Oswald is very much one of those ensembles. Having heard them before, there was a lot of potential to be harnessed but I'll admit they didn't strike me as anything extraordinary. Their music fit the indie-punk label pretty nicely but again, I couldn't spot an X-factor. It's a pleasant note to say that this time around, they craft a more expansive record that has a lot of weight to it on so many fronts and genre-wise, really touches a lot of different bases. While Regards does traipse around their older mannerisms and influences a lot, it doesn't stick to their stylistic guns, which allows them to flesh out their messages even fuller and also, a bit more unconventionally. The result? A solid record that's sure to catch you off-guard if you never took them in before.
