    Cryptacize: Nedelle Torrisi (vocals, guitar, autoharp, strings); Chris Cohen (vocals, guitar); Michael Carreira (harmonica, drums).
    Recording information: New Improved Recording, Oakland, CA.
    This California trio's debut full-length, DIG THAT TREASURE, is a wholly unique masterpiece of minimalist indie pop and patiently timed songwriting. Ex-Deerhoof guitarist Chris Cohen provides scratchy but spare guitar flourishes that expand and contract like bellows to a flame, chanteuse Nedelle Torrisi delivers a sweet counterbalance with pitch-perfect melodic grace, and drummer Michael Carreira keeps the tempos loose but incessant with inspired offhand percussion choices. As with Deerhoof, Cryptacize's obvious joy in their craft infectiously carries over to the listener.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Cryptacize artfully navigate the dusty corners of naive rock, a semi-dormant genre whose line runs from the Velvet Underground through Beat Happening..."
    Harp (magazine) (p.100) - "There's a fragility to this irresistible music that belies carefully considered and structurally sound arrangements."
