Charity Numbers

January 9, 2012

For a nice dose of classic US lo-fi pop, check out The Charity Numbers‘ self-titled debut EP! Not too much info about the band I’m afraid (no links and no bio) but with Berlin added as a tagline I’m guessing they’re a German band. We’re talking some really nice melodies delivered with a decent amount of distortion and tape hiss, occasionally bringing early Weezer to mind.

Six nice songs including one instrumental track and an homage to actress Thora Birch. Thick, layered guitars, lots of hooks and good vocal performance make this a nice release for fans of early Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh. The EP is available as a free download so check it out.
