Teevee

Bask (Wallflower Records)

Texas Platters

Reverb-laced, garage-based – Teevee's Bask checks all the boxes for big fuzz. Through heavy guitar divulging and outro oscillations, the locals' second EP maintains a sonically propelled lightness, best played out in first of four "Loretta." Alex Capistran's soft, slithery croon phases through early Oh Sees and a shoegaze-infused sprawl, topping off the buoyant capture of thick, bubbling psychedelia. Muted, lo-fi drums shake up sighing "Lovedrive," landing on final unhurried wash, aptly deemed "Slow Tide."
