[MELLOW GOLD] Hitting the studio again after putting out a commercial dud is surely an intimidating prospect. In 2010, Oakland multi-instrumentalist Zach Schwartz—the brainchild of Rogue Wave—watched as the group’s fourth album, the dance-pop foray Permalight, slipped into obscurity, selling half as many records as the band’s two preceding albums. Nightingale Floors, its latest, represents a return to the rollicking, heartfelt indie pop that first garnered the band commercial appeal and defined its affable nature. The repetitive and gauzy guitar lines, quivering synths and Schwartz’s soft-spoken tendencies still float above the electronic flourishes and austere sonic landscape, albeit with more comfort than ever before.
