Hope And Adams' is an interesting fusion of indie and roots rock along with neo-psychadelic twists. Overall there's a wispy smokey, almost reflective feeling to Wheat's music, with this uncanny ability to maintain it considering their wide range of influences. The first half seems to straddle adult-contemporary rock and the experimental country-tinged flavor of Wilco.
But even without such a gripper, the new LP is a little gem that gobbles up time slowly with grace in the same way that Idaho does, or Red House Painters did years prior, only without the gloomy voice
