Just 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.
