2017 release from the Portland, Oregon-based band. Eyelids existed long before the actual band came to be. Friends for over two decades, principal songwriters John Moen and Chris Slusarenko had long desired to get together to write songs, "sweet melodies" paired with "bummer vibes," which would fuse Big Star's jangle to XTC's melodicism, connecting the dots between the dream pop sounds of the '80s Paisley Underground to the homespun post-punk of the legendary Flying Nun label. With Or, the band's second full-length LP, Eyelids have created their most emotional record yet.
