This is a somewhat belated follow-up to a Baby Tooth single I pitched your way in 2011. At the time I noted my intentions to obtain their ep (which actually runs closer to album length). At any rate, here it is. Six longish salvos from a noisy and much defunct New York trio. "Potentiometer" is a curiosity, alternating between dissonance and a faint pop hook with the former winning out in the end. Is that guy really tuning his guitar mid-song, or are my ears deceiving me? Rare Book Room gets all the more interesting when the boys shift into unabashed shoegazer mode, à la lo-fi contemporaries the Swirlies on "Comes and Goes," and "Slide," the latter fastening Michal Sapir's whispery vox to an oscillating wall of tremolo-laced feedback. Me like.
