Little Tybee, Goose and Fox, Hill Dogs
830 E Burnside St.
[FRIENDLY FOLK ROCK] After its music was featured on CNN and that terrible MTV remake of Skins, Atlanta’s Little Tybee must have decided it deserved an upgrade. On its 2013 release For Distant Viewing, the band ditched the lo-fi techniques of previous albums in favor of a glossy studio sound. But even though everything’s cleaner, it still sounds like a bunch of folks jamming in a living room. That’s not to say it’s a loose effort: The album’s brand of folk-rock is a technically intricate web of strings and percussion—even the handclaps are incredibly tight. But nevertheless, the joyful energy that lights up every track makes it clear that this is a bunch of friends having a ball.
