Sydney-based Dappled Cities drop the "Fly" from their name on their second release, but keep the epically quirky pop tunes. Sure, you hear dabs of Wayne Coyne's showmanship on songs, but you also pick up tastes of late-'80s Brit rock flavors, as well as lo-fi touches like those of Grandaddy. This latter detail makes sense, as the iconoclastic Central Valley group's former guitarist, Jim Fairchild, produced this excellent set of songs.
