The third outing from the ex-Cross Canadian Ragweed bandleader's rough and tumble Departed project, Hippielovepunk offers up a big, roomy set of guitar-driven, Southern rock confections that retain the engaging, hook-driven commercial appeal of his prior group while injecting a bit more sonic muscle into the mix. The first Departed outing not to feature the guitar and vocal charms of co-founder Seth James, who left the group amicably in 2013, the album feature 11 tracks, including the first radio-ready single, "Inbetweener." ~ James Christopher Monger
