Fourth studio album from Kentucky's Cage The Elephant. Tell Me I'm Pretty finds the band turning inward, abandoning the assertive guitars and the generous helping of hooks of their 2013 effort, Melophobia. The band enlisted Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys to produce the album, and he brings out the late 60s and early 70s side of their sound. For a band that seems to channel everything from the Beatles and the Pixies to grunge and garage rock, Auerbach finds plenty of T. Rex style glam to work with. Fuzzed out psych guitars and analog keyboards are all over the record along with plenty of tambourine shaking. Includes the songs: "Sweetie Little Jean," "Punchin' Bag," and "That's Right." Ten tracks in all. Released by DSP on 180 gram vinyl.
