The new Charts EP was recorded in a single afternoon at the band's practice space, and it sounds like it. That's not a slight, though; the four songs on Tease are charmingly ramshackle, and if the drums are muffled and the guitars sound like something that would give Pat Metheny nightmares, it only adds to the scruffy DIY charm. Charts have put together some quick, spontaneous pop tunes that sound like they sprouted up overnight, like toadstools, with a brilliant pop-tune kernel tucked away inside each one. Tiger House also have a four-song EP that's being released tonight: Acid Banshee // Camel Party—which the band is making available on cassette and at Bandcamp—certainly has a more polished sound than Charts, but it's no less immediate. Tiger House's tumbling love songs are filled with tight turns and fun little detours, and as casual-seeming as each of the EP's songs kick off, Tiger House can't help but inject a grandly soaring sense of yearning into each one.
