ANIMALS in the ATTIC (Sacto) + LO-Fi LEGS ~ $8 ~ 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Sacramento, California has given us a unique gift in Animals In The Attic. This sleepy sounding band have released their latest effort titled Half-Asleep Surf, which they also use to describe their melodic indie sound.
The opening two tracks of Half-Asleep Surf are both relaxing tunes to sway to, with sharp lyrics that flow well and a vocal delivery to rival the best of them. The opening number focuses on the theme of taking care of a loved one, a nod to helping someone let go of the past when they are ready to move on. Excellent contrast carries this song along, the soothing and reassuring vocals combine with the melodic (occasionally up tempo) instruments. Underwater is a track that sounds exactly like it’s name implies, the vocals are modified to sound as if they singer might just actually be underwater. The vaguely surf rock guitar riffs flow in and out from this track right into the next, Island Of Two. The production on vocals continues to shine, as the guitar work is more subtle but still carries the lyrics smoothly. The atmosphere in this song keeps up the style of sleepy melody that Animals in the Attic are so adept at creating.
