“The Stump Mutts’ newest album, We Can All Relate (released in November), takes its title from the chorus of the track, “Ignorance Bring Bliss”: “Hey, we can all relate.

The bridge, however, is a cool shimmer of strings sliced with atmospheric noise. This is an album of astute production and delicate balances.”
