To say that we were huge fans of The Beths' 2018 album Future Me Hates Me is an understatement. It was the only album both of us chose for our top 10's at the end of that year. Does that mean that I didn't enjoy Jump Rope Gazers as much. I don't think so. Future Me Hates Me benefitted from the excitement of discovering a new band that I truly love, plus I was able to see them live that year, so I was still riding high off of how great that collection of songs was live. Jump Rope Gazers is truly a great album. It's filled with these great upbeat alt-rock/pop songs with a fantastic sense of humor and impossibly catchy hooks. If you loved Future Me Hates Me, you already love this album, too. And if you haven't listened yet, you truly need to as soon as humanly possible.
Songs of note: "I'm Not Getting Excited," "Dying to Believe," "Out of Sight," and "Don't Go Away"
