If vocalist and guitar player Yuval Haring didn’t sing in Hebrew, Vaadat Charigim’s second full-length, Sinking as a Stone, out on Fullerton, California’s increasingly adventurous Burger Records, could pass for a long-lost album from the shoegaze era. The Tel Aviv trio, whose name roughly translates as “Exceptions Committee,” has the Ride-meets-Slowdive moves down cold: rolling rhythms, aqueous guitars, and echoey, submerged vocals (bassist Dan Bloch and drummer Yuval Guttmann complete the lineup). At worst, their follow-up to 2013’s The World Is Well Lost offers minimal melodic variation from track to track, but at best, their daydreaming-on-a-sunny-day vibe is strong and true (and it’s worth noting that the album’s theme is boredom). Take a deep dive into their inviting body of sound, and you might never hit bottom. KATHY FENNESSY
