Careful With That Hat

Posted in Music on February 12th, 2010 by Tom

citayJust at the end of January, Citay put out their fourth album, Dream Get Together. I’d never heard of this band, but the sample I found was cool, and the album art reminded me of one of my favorite webcomics, so it seemed worth a try. The entire reason I’m doing just this song instead of a full album review is because I can’t get these guys figured out. It is pretty far outside of my “comfort zone” as far as genre is concerned: something expansive, otherworldly, and altogether psychedelic, but still grounded and technically very tight. These musicians are class acts.

My favorite track is the opener, and really the only one I listen to as of now. It’s called ‘Careful With That Hat‘, and I have no idea what it’s about, but the opening riff just makes me wanna DANCE, and that always scores major points.
