check out what the press has been saying:

“The sounds of Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Deerhunter, and MGMT–all in one song? It could be a Pratt Institute student’s senior thesis or a Girl Talk mash-up. But it’s the propulsive title track off these exuberant Cincinnati kids’ third album–and the sonic orgy actually works. All 13 kaleidoscopic tracks, particularly standout “Anywhere You Go,” a supercollider of rhythmic groove, guitar, and Wurlitzer organ, distill a decade-plus of indie and alt rock into a sparking art-pop swell. Spazzing out, Joey Cook cries: “I really like you!” The feeling’s mutual.”

“Like the rest of their new release, One of Us, ‘50s’ puts a beat into your step and you drift off into a swooning world of guitar strings, and mastered mixing.”

“Think the Flaming Lips’ alternate-universe psych-pop, Broken Social Scene’s abstraction or a lucid, funk-free Of Montreal…”

“On the heels of memorable appearances at this year’s SXSW and CMJ festivals, the fourtet gear up for what’s already been called their best record to date.”

“Cincinnati’s Pomegranates specialize in a sort of shimmering, reverb-heavy indie-rock full of sinewy but innocent guitars and slinky rhythms that fall just shy of funky.”

Pomegranates Make MAGNET A Mix Tape

Cincinnati’s Pomegranates started out as a fun project between friends Jacob Merritt and Isaac Karns, but it grew with staggering speed, releasing an EP within just months and signing a record deal soon after. Fast-forward four years to present day, and Pomegranates is now a quartet set to release its third album, One Of Us, on October 26 on Afternoon Records. The band is currently on an extensive U.S. tour in support of the release, but the guys were nice enough to take the time to make MAGNET this mix tape—and even make an ordered playlist on YouTube for your viewing pleasure, which can be found here.
