Nobody likes CHARLIE, everybody hates them.
Or at least that’s what’s to be derived from the playfully-titled “Davud Linch,” the eerie, abrasive third track on Jamaica Plain-based noise rockers first album, Kelley’s Girls. But after a feverish listen, unlike watching a David Lynch film or an afternoon spent with “Twin Peaks,” there’s no doubt that you’ve enjoyed what you’ve just experienced. Same is true for the rest—a fun, frantic, even spastic experimental foray into a piss-take on post-punk. But as much as vocalist/bassist Dan Hockstein snarls, “don’t look at me / don’t look at me” on the tightly-wound “Hard Carpet” (joined by Steve Cameron on drums and Tim Johnson on guitar), we don’t plan on turning away anytime soon. In fact, we are just counting down the days until we can see the trio get sweaty live, as it’s clear from their four-song debut that they’d put on one raucous show.
