Like any self-respecting Boston resident, Ellen Kempner can't resist namechecking Dunkin Donuts. Palehound's second full-length has more than just a blueberry glazed going for it, but it's the kind of detail that adds personality to a collection of highly serviceable alt-rock songs.

There's a distinct '90s sound, a channelling of Pavement complete with head-swaying riffs going on here. It's hard not to imagine speeding off into the sunset as a track like "Flowing Over" revs up. Elsewhere, even though the formula remains rigid, this one-time solo project that became a band is simply too cool for it to matter much. (www.palehound.bandcamp.com)
