TELEVISIONARIES, THE: Freezing to Death: CS

Instrumental surf punk from Buffalo, New York’s More Power Tapes, who are making an excellent showing in this review cycle. Big drums, lots of reverb, and a tsunami’s worth of clever tempo changes. Lots of guitar tricks and fun, toe-tapping melodies, good enough to—albeit briefly—give Night Birds a run for their money. Standout track: “Glasstron.” Check these guys out!
