Whilst Omaha’s Mynabirds make perfectly acceptable radio-friendly pop rock, there’s a lack of cutting edge on this, their third record and first since 2012’s Generals. Perhaps surprising given that they’re signed to Saddle Creek.  In fact, the one band that springs to mind on middle of the road tunes such as All My Heart and single Somantics, is Texas. Make of that what you will. Album highlight and dance-orientated Orion recalls Coldplay at their most electronic and experimental whilst the overall feel is a chill-out vibe that’s so laid back it’s almost horizontal. It’s nice enough but it’s a lot more Sunday afternoon than Saturday night. File under easy listening.
