“There’s a moment in growing up when it becomes clear that the road you walk is your own to cultivate.”

A surprisingly profound sentiment for a band of 21-year olds. Nevertheless, it’s a sentiment that animates much of landmark , the debut album from Minneapolis’ Hippo Campus.

From the resplendent “way it goes,” a guitar led gallop about the Instagram-filtered church of cool, to the propulsive “boyish,” a horn-kissed rumination on children of divorce, landmark is shot through with a woozy dissonance between precocious wisdom and old-as-time coming of age stories. The result is a messy, brave, and earnest whole — not to mention, a tectonic shift forward for a young band still discovering itself.
