Charts' new EP, Vacation, polishes the Portland trio's lo-fi murk to a surprisingly sunny new sheen. Recorded live at Troubadour Studios and mixed by Jeff Bond, the four catchy, rock-solid new tracks find the band discarding their homegrown tape-hiss vibe in favor of a reverb-laden, tropical-tinged version of chiming power-pop. It's a great sounding record, from the gallop of opening track "Settling Down" to the wanderlusting "Get on the Bus," finding room for the '50s sock-hop of "Burn Out" and the slow-dance of "I Don't Mind" along the way. Charts are dipping down to California for a handful of shows, but tonight they celebrate the excellent EP's release and a kickoff to the quick tour. NED LANNAMANN
