Backtracking through Babysitter's Bandcamp page is quite a journey. The Victoria, BC, punk-rock band have issued a half-dozen cassette releases dating to 2010, in addition to a handful of split 7-inch appearances. Their full-length, Eye, released late last year, serves as a re-recorded greatest hits album from that lo-fi tape series. The evolution of the band's sound can be tracked from one tape to the next, and Eye does a great job in harnessing all the elements into an outstanding collection. "Talkin' 'Bout the New Generation" kicks the album off with a full force rock anthem, while softer ballad tracks like "Crace Mountain" strip things down to reveal the band's dynamic range. Local acts Lunch and Wire Eyes will be sure to get things moving right out of the gate. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
