BEST LOCAL CD

Dumbwaiters, Musick

The long-running, member-swapping Tampa iconoclasts didn’t do something so normal as “finally live up to their potential” with this, their second proper (or maybe “acknowledged” is the right word) full-length; they completely surpassed expectations. Not to slight Bay area original music in the least, but if you didn’t know Dumbwaiters were locals, listening to Musick’s audacious, mesmerizing mix of Krautrock, riff-rock and damaged robotic noise would inspire you to ask first where they were from, and then when they were coming to town. www.dumbwaiters.org.
