Ever since Cloakroom emerged on the heavy scene in 2015 with its debut LP, Further Out, much has been made about the trio’s roots in northwest Indiana, and the fact that its members were factory workers. And if you try real hard, you can probably project some Rust Belt day-job dreariness onto the band’s sound, or conjure up a correlation between Cloakroom’s faintly twangy rock and the rural-meets-industrial nature of its home region. But it’s simpler to just say that drummer Brian Busch, bassist Bobby Markos, and guitarist/lead vocalist Doyle Martin excel at a moody but melodic amalgam of syrupy shoegaze, hazy slowcore, gentle doom, and some sparkling post-hardcore elements that sound like they’ve melted in the backseat of a beige hooptie. Cloakroom’s new album, Time Well, is a masterwork of sleepy-eyed riffs, mumbled melodies, and downcast vibes. BEN SALMON
