Artist: Teeth on Teeth Song: "Wild Into the Waters"

The first time I saw Teeth on Teeth at Carabar last year, they reminded me of a Brooklyn art-school band, not because of pretention or self-seriousness, but rather due to their air of urban cool and their ability to blend the heavy with the heart-on-sleeve. That crunch doesn't quite come through on the band's recordings, but they still showcase a Columbus band trying a sound unlike much else going in the city and pulling it off quite nicely. I picked "Wild Into the Waters" because I like the title, but any of the tracks on their MySpace page would be worth a listen. They'll be at The Treehouse, 887 Chambers Rd., tonight at 10 with Finding Fiction, Love Culture and Halos Were Found at the Landing Site.
