Though they share the same name as the fictional band beloved by cartoon's Doug Funnie, the Beets from Queens, New York, are not merely animated Fab Four impostors. Rather, they're a lo-fi garage band making catchy songs with repetitive choruses that inch their way into your ears and latch onto your brain. Like a lot of music these days, the Beets require repeated listens before something in their music finally clicks. It took me two years and a pair of albums before I finally began to appreciate their bratty, nonsensical ramshackle pop (I obviously wasn't cool enough to "get" their debut Spit in the Face of People Who Don't Want to Be Cool.) Their latest full-length, Stay Home, is incidentally what brought it all back. I'm just waiting for them to come full circle and cover "Killer Tofu." TRAVIS RITTER
