[GUITAR ROCK] The late Lou Reed once described the sound of the Velvet Underground as “cymbals eating guitars.” The Staten Island band, which takes its name from that famous line, is more ’90s indie rock than ’60s avant-rock, though, operating in the guitar-driven mold of Ted Leo or Built to Spill. While unapologetically stoking a 20-year-old flame, Cymbals Eat Guitars brings some occasional dreamy experimentalism to the table, along with dark and seedy lyrical material that would make Mr. Reed proud.
