Boomkat nails it:

We’re only 2 minutes into the cascading arpeggios and pastoral guitars of ‘Candy Shoppe’ before they hit us with the first pivotal bliss surge. It’s these moments that define their sound and reflect the comparison to “cheesy” new age or kosmiche, moments of open-hearted honesty delivered without ironic discharge.

Bonus points to the YouTube poster for the Vertov footage… even though it doesn’t quite make sense.
