    Tortuga Shades, San Gabriel, Lady Chops & the Goddamn Jam

    Melodically thought out and purposefully hand-crafted, Tortuga Shades’ first album Revolving hits heights some don’t reach until around LP No. 3. The local quartet produces a seamlessly woven and relevant collection of indie pop/rock forged on the repeating guitar pattern similarly found in a Neon Trees creation. Remembering the trials and tribulations of quarantine, “Comes Around” hypnotizes listeners with a catchy tune and relatable lyrics. “It’s easier to sink back into what feels right/ Plenty of times I’ve been broken down,” Nadia Lopez sings followed by an epic guitar break from Gian Diliberto. The leading yet relaxing drum from Wylie Sanchez on “Year of the Dog” pitches bassist Casey Popp a home run for “BMS” (Black Messenger Sparrow) and finishes with another ripper from Diliberto.
