Take Care, Take Care, Take Care

This instrumental quartet from Austin specialize in a highly disciplined enchantment: echo-laden orchestral-guitar rock as specific as Bach in its circling concentric melodies and as steadfast as AC/DC in its push to ecstasy. The group's fifth studio album glistens with episodic rigor, climbing through clockwork chiming and treble staccato to a peak of shredded-Byrds jangle in "Postcard From 1952." There are sly shocks, too. "Be Comfortable, Creature" is nearly all hovering suspense, threaded with liquid-drone guitar, while "Trembling Hands" is three and a half minutes of bright, fast power rock, proof that this band can also go from sea level to mountaintop and back in a hit-single sprint.
