Fuzzy Cloaks, the Apollos, Wamu, Monarchies

(Comet) Local five-piece the Apollos play fun, shamelessly retro garage-sike that stresses the former part of that hyphenated term. Their songs are preternaturally infectious and bathed lightly in reverb. The Apollos have the moves down and are ready to rock your house party. Fuzzy Cloaks—the solo project of Scott Yoder—pumps out amiable, fidelity-deficient indie pop that sometimes goes wonky along the peripheries. He seemingly has an effortless way with writing winsome, slightly askew miniatures that stick in your head for a good while. It wouldn't surprise me if Yoder had a fair number of R. Stevie Moore, Sentridoh, and Times New Viking MP3s on his hard drive. DAVE SEGAL
