Mp3 of the Week: Tulsa



Carter Tanton spent his formative years in Baltimore, playing in bands and eventually recording a solo album that Philly indie label Park the Van (Dr. Dog, the Teeth) released in 2005. Then he moved to Boston, recruited a crack rhythm section, dubbed his new band TULSA, and, using the ancient, dusty analog equipment in his Allston basement, recorded an EP that will be available from PTV as a download-only on February 13. On "Fill Her In" Tulsa sound like a souped-up Neutral Milk Hotel,with Tanton’s acoustic guitar pumped through an old tube pre-amp so that it sounds like a fuzzed-out electric, and his desperate, wavery tenor, which he filtered though a Memory Man analog delay pedal, floating above. There's more where this came from: we've heard a couple tracks from the band's full-length, coming later this year, and suffice to say it's really, really good. In other words: stay tuned, the boy's going to be a problem.
