Precious Art is a quintessential Rozwell Kid album and something entirely new at the same time. It's teeming with understated nostalgia, but doesn't get too lost in the past. Rather, it recalibrates the past, revisiting it with the added wisdom that comes with age. It's quirky in the way that Rozwell Kid songs have always been quirky, but more than any other record the band has made, it sees frontman Jordan Hudkins diving deep into the heart of human existence, telling universal truths based on his own personal memories and unexamined experiences.

The result is an album that expands the strain of weird whimsy that's always run through the band's songs, but on which it's increasingly difficult to ignore the more serious side of things. Nothing illustrates that more than the song "Booger." Yes, it's an amusing tale that revolves around the green stuff that comes out of your nose being smeared across the screen of your smartphone, but it's also so much more than that – it's a tender, touching and even tragic ode to lost love, that is filled with an audibly sad beauty.

Elsewhere, opener "Wendy's Trash Can" is a fuzzy, feel-good power-punk song for the summer that sounds like it could be from 1977 as much as 2017, while "UHF On DVD" is a good-humored, high energy probe into anxiety and insecurity. On crucial late cut, "Gameball," Hudkins is literally out in left field, playing baseball, trying to do well and meet expectations while watching others score and succeed. It's on "Michael Keaton," however, that Rozwell Kid finds a moment all its own. The near 5-minute album closer is a quirky take on hero worship that simultaneously and expertly reveals the incredible depths of the human condition.

Here and all over Precious Art, Hudkins communicates in his own special language to relay the same emotions most songwriters do; excitement, disappointment, heartbreak, love, self-doubt, and more.
