If Weezer were fronted by Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino, the resulting band might sound like Field Mouse. Episodic is a breezy, brief record filled with sunny guitar rock, assertive lyrics, and enough catchy hooks to send you longing for the glory days of ’90s indie.┬áRachel Browne’s vocals are so smooth that it’s almost difficult to register any anger in her words, such as in the opening of “Mirror” when she sings, “What a way to say fuck off.” In “Half-Life,” “I’ve lived more lives than you” sounds like a statement of common sense rather than a boast about maturity. Later on in the record, “Beacon” is an anthem for empowerment (“today was different because I made it so”).┬áEach song on Episodic is punchy, short, and sweet. Nothing dares get close to the four-minute mark. The band gets the point across and moves on to the next song, and in the end, they’ve left me wanting more.
