The second full-length from the Bay Area indie-pop masterclass that is Swiftumz.
"Proof that there are still great things coming out of the Bay Area that don’t involve your smartphone. Seems like a big fan of Polo by Ralph Lauren, too, and I appreciate that." - Doug Mosurock, Still Single
RECORD OF THE WEEK: "On Everybody Loves Chris, the titular Chris McVicker has stepped up his game on every possible level, crafting a stoned mix of stuck-in-your-head pop hooks, saccharine love songs that you want to play over and over again, and Ariel Pinkish bedroom lo-fi weirdness. Did we mention wanting to play them over and over again? This record is seriously difficult to not start right up again after it ends.
By the time we finished track three on the first listen, this was pretty much automatically a Record Of The Week, bringing to mind Teenage Fanclub power pop, Guided By Voices, and maybe even the more sunshine-y Sparklehorse tracks out there." - aQuarius Records
"For every bit of jangle and every candy coated chorus there's a track that's caked in thick froth, shrouding any trace of sunny pop and finding joy in the dark corners of his catalog. The album twists itself into knots that earworm straight to your brain and take root. McVicker's pop vision seems like the kind of album that would have reviewers flocking, a fucked pop nugget that can't be contained or pinned down." - Raven Sings The Blues
"For all the influences that are easily spotted and all the styles he tries on for size, there's never a moment when it feels like he's on a nostalgia trip or doing any musical sightseeing. Swiftumz are on their own journey, and if the next step is as fun as Everybody Loves Chris, you'll want to take it with them." - Tim Sendra, allmusic.com
