Cause Co-Motion!, ‘It’s Time! Singles and EPs 2005–2008′ (Slumberland)

Cause Co-Motion! hustle. Of the 14 songs compiled here, not a one exceeds two minutes, and the Brooklyn foursome fizz through their jangly, three-chord workouts with the melodic aplomb usually reserved for those who love their instruments like brothers, not broken toys. While bookends “Only Fades Away” and “Cry for Attention” call to mind Calvin Johnson’s dirty fingernails, the vortex of “Say What You Feel” is Cause Co!’s alone — 90 seconds of DIY garage bliss tied up with Technicolor chewing gum and shoestring.
