Baby Calendar

On their followup to last year's debut EP, Your Move, indie rock group Baby Calendar offers an album custom-made for these slow summer days. Tom Gorrio's guitar work continues to gain complexity without losing its sense of euphoric zeal, while lead singer/bassist Jackie Biver's vocals have become an amalgam of gospel power and sweet virtue. Arik Dayan has come on board since the EP on the drums, improving revisited tracks ("Green Tea" and "Within Cell Walls") as well as contributing new songs. Standouts are the title track, "Industry," and their cover of Objects in Transit's "I Hate Meeces to Pieces." Fifteen Year Old Sneakers is another beautiful DIY effort from one of South Florida's finest.
