Cryptacize Dig That Treasure
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Asthmatic Kitty
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Famously quitting Deerhoof to focus on The Curtains, Chris Cohen’s latest project, Cryptacize, continues to take pop music far out of context. Minimal but entirely theatric, the trio is rounded out by Kill Rock Stars artist Nedelle Torrisi and Michael Carreira. Dig That Treasure, their debut for Asthmatic Kitty, expands on timeless song structures until they erupt with energy. “Stop Watch” rumbles a staccato guitar atop a gentle Autoharp, while “We’ll Never Dream Again” builds a slow jam into a messy chorus. But the real highlight is “Water Witching Wishes,” where a muted guitar brings way for marching drums and strings reminiscent of a ’60s film soundtrack.
