Night Windows – “World out of This World”


“World out of This World” is a catchy, upbeat success from Night Windows’ sophomore LP, A Week or Two That Will Sorely Be Missed. The act, fronted by Ben Hughes and with roots in Philly/South Jersey, produces a vein of folk-leaning power-pop with shades of The New Pornographers and John Vanderslice. Quainter efforts like “Baltimore Hotel Bible” harken to names like David Bazan and Conor Oberst, and effectively so. “World out of This World” is in the more raucously infectious end, touting a vibrant and hook-friendly sound with an emphasis on an addictive hook/melody.
