BASK: Task: CS

Bask are a Houston-based three-piece band doing really great, super catchy, and tuneful ‘90s-influenced bedroom indie rock. It’s straight up really, really good. John Sears of Bask is a Houston legend in my book—a genius type who has been putting out DIY releases on his Grey Ghost label for well over twenty years, often in hyper-limited editions, including sometimes putting out his own projects like this one. I’m convinced all of the bands he’s ever been in (or at least the ones I have known about) have been good, and this is another winner to support my theory. Seven songs total are included here, one of which is long and droney, unlike the others. Absolutely recommended. –Mark Twistworthy (Grey Ghost / Poison Moon, poisonmoonrecords.com)
