Vertical Scratchers, Bear & Moose

[TRANSMISSIONS AFTER ZERO] Few musicians balance the melodic with the schizophrenic as well as John Schmersal. The dude’s resume is nearly impeccable: guitarist for Dayton synth-punk heroes Brainiac; founder of the equally quirky (but less neurotic) Brooklyn band Enon; touring guitarist for Caribou; and now, leader of two diametrically opposed new bands, Crooks on Tape and the pop-heavy Vertical Scratchers. While Crooks on Tape explores the zanier side of his earlier material, Vertical Scratchers’ debut record, Daughter of Everything, is unabashed power pop, short nuggets of adrenaline that channel the Beatles through classic Guided by Voices, with the short track lengths to boot. The 15 songs whiz by in under 30 minutes, but when things are this catchy, it’s best to just grab another pint and get lost in the noise.
