Cryptacize release their second album, Mythomania, on April 21st. The trio is Nedelle Torrisi, Chris Cohen of The Curtains/ex-Deerhoof, along with Michael Carreira. The spare, jagged rhythmic tunes nearly evoke a ‘60s girl pop band in a mid-‘80s post-punk setting and yet sound thoroughly contemporary and new.

I had to wonder if Cryptacize suffers from the musical version of the classic bridesmaid syndrome: Always the opener, never the headliner.

Chris Cohen's new band distinguishes itself from his previous bands (Deerhoof, the Curtains) through sweetness and simplicity.
