Cryptacize, 'Dig That Treasure' (Asthmatic Kitty)

6
Dig That Treasure
Critical Mass
Label: Asthmatic Kitty

by Josh Modell

When not lost in naked optimism and irritatingly peppy good cheer ("Every note is an unfinished song / We're all in a cosmic sing-along" goes one sickly sweet number), Cryptacize artfully navigate the dusty corners of naive rock, a semi-dormant genre whose line runs from the Velvet Underground through Beat Happening and the Juno soundtrack. This new band -- prominently featuring Kill Rock Stars alum Nedelle Torrisi -- never sinks into blatant oversimplicity, and the results are pleasant and intermittently exciting.
