“You’re hard on yourself/Well, you can’t always be right,” Julia Shapiro advises reassuringly on “Different Now,” the opening track on Chastity Belt’s latest album, I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone. As she sings, she and fellow guitarist Lydia Lund braid together colorful garlands of indie-rock guitar that float soothingly over her worried words. Those guitar patterns sometimes evoke Television, The Clean and Sonic Youth, dressing up Shapiro’s pleading vocals with an arty backdrop of shifting and luminous melodies. Annie Truscott’s restless bass lines combine with Gretchen Grimm’s straight-ahead drums to tether the two guitarists’ wilder flights into the ether. “5am” evolves from a mellow, Cure-like idyll into a majestic tangle of swollen guitars.
