HyeTension is an amazing band. They sound better (and look better too) playing in a bathroom than most bands sound in the studio or on stage. Their funky, almost Caribbean style on “Mod Girlz” makes a perfect unplugged song, while the bathroom supplies just the right acoustics. (Just a side note: CocoRosie recorded their first CD in their bathroom). If you close your eyes, Chris Kasbarian – Vocals/Rhythm Guitar, sounds a lot like David Byrne from the Talking Heads, and that’s no slouch of a comparison. The rest of the band includes Carter Auch – Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals, Ryan Sheehan – Bass Guitar/Backing Vocals, and Sam Khalaji – Drums/Backing Vocals. If an acoustic piece sounds this good, I cannot wait until August 18th to get their EP, The Observer. They are that good.
