Carnivores at Propaganda April 29

Considering its geographic origin and certain obvious influences, the comparisons between Atlanta group Carnivores and scene predecessors Black Lips are inevitable. Like the Lips, this quartet plays lo-fi rock that's more than a little informed by psychedelia and garage.

Still, to peg this outfit as Black Lips Lite would be unfair. While the Lips are unapologetically fuzzed-out, possibly drugged-out (they wrote a song called "Lean," after all), and loud at all times, Carnivores' sound is more tempered. There's less of a balls-to-the-wall punk rock energy and more of an infatuation with mid-'60s British Invasion acts.

A song like "Georgia Power Company" could surely be the soundtrack to an acid test. But others, such as the organ-driven "Dressed for the Rain," are close to dance-floor jams for the Quadrophenia crowd, while some of the best cuts feature classically trained keyboardist Caitlin Lang's vocals, such as "Salts to Mine," a song that charms with seriously bittersweet girl-group wistfulness.
