This Seattle trio’s debut might be named after the 4/4 Krautrock beat, but their musical roots are really in post-punk. Bassist/vocalist Sio spins out trebly lines and yelps away with the requisite intensity, while guitarist Adrian throws moody riffs into nearly every number. The band may be new but the players are not: Adrian and drummer Hoagie previously performed together in the punk D.C. Beggars and Frail. On Klang! They’re not afraid to experiment, throwing in occasional synth lines and electronically-treated drums. And songs like “It’s Just Sgar” show they’ve also picked up some pop starts along the way.
