    Recording information: Allaise (01/2006).
    On 2007's SPELLS, their first album for the Vagrant label, the Comas offer up a dynamic set of songs that bristle with inventiveness and energy. Founded in North Carolina, the New York City-based band excels at edgy, guitar-driven tunes that make unpredictable turns (see the catchy-yet-quirky "Red Microphones") and sometimes feature unexpectedly prominent keyboard lines (the urgent "Come My Sunshine"). Boasting a restless sound that is difficult to pigeonhole, SPELLS is one of '07's most notable indie-rock surprises.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.63) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[They] make indie pop rock that tosses in modest atmospherics and stays pretty tuneful."
    Spin (p.84) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he hooks are stronger, the production richer, and the scale grander."
    CMJ (p.38) - "On SPELLS, the melancholy that has defined much of the band's previous work sounds almost celebratory, with more songs framed in major, rather than minor, chord structures."
