While foundationally a rock album, Next of Kin has a magical iridescence. Oscillating and shifting dramatically between sounds and genres over its fourteen song tracklist, the album glistens with sheens of alt-country, pristine pop production, and richly layered rock maximalism. The first Bellows album to feature a constant full-band presence bolstering Kalbs home recordings, the album channels the immediacy and intensity of the bands live performances. Songs like McNally Jackson and Dawn at Central Park marry Kalbs penchant for contemplative, almost literary narration with lavish, kinetic composition. But its Next of Kins climax Thumb in the Dam that is the albums thematic centerpiece: as Kalb realizes hes lost a sense of his own selfhood in a deeply enmeshed romance, crossing and confusing identities with a lost love, the album ends with a recognition of identity as perpetually in flux, with change itself being the only constant force.
