Of all the new bands to catch my attention this year, Cymbals Eat Guitars have been the best. Wavves was interesting but overrated. Cymbals at least feel like the real deal even if they draw obviously from Pavement, early Modest Mouse, and Built To Spill. Still, they manage to whip their sound into a fresh mixture. 'And The Hazy Sea' is the first song from the album and a pretty good indicator of the patient give-and-take the album strikes between slow, wide open expanses and sharp, noisy spikes.
