Last Tuesday, the Williamsburg venue Baby’s All Right hosted an array of excellent garagey pop sounds featuring Little Racer, Eternal Summers and Cheatahs. Little Racer opened the night, a local foursome who rattled and clanked over hazy surf-pop riffs. The group played a few new songs from their forthcoming EP, Modern Accent, out next month, along with other melancholy, sun-soaked tunes like Vanessa.
Virginia-based three piece, Eternal Summers, also previewed material from their new studio album, The Drop Beneath (Kanine), inviting producer-guitarist Doug Gillard to the stage to play along on a select number of tracks from the new record.
The night’s headliner, Cheatahs, was conceived by four musicians, each with their own respective bands at the time, who “cheated” on their old bands. A fairly new band, they debuted their first, self-titled album last month. They sure didn’t play like rookies though. Their set was unwavering, exhilarating, cataclysmic noise rock spalshing against luminescent black light around them.
