Chastity Belt return with another mesmerizing set of songs on their recent self-titled album on the Hardly Art label. Where other bands tend to bluster and shout to get attention, the Seattle quartet prefer to mask their provocative lyrics in a blur of soothing harmonies and the glowing hum of guitarists Julia Shapiro’s and Lydia Lund’s chords layered with low-key rhythmic accents by bassist Annie Truscott and drummer Gretchen Grimm. “Fogging up the mirror, see yourself disappear,” Shapiro intones softly on “Drown,” one of the singles from the album. “Now you’re just trying to get through everyday shit by acting with false confidence,” she continues in a dreamy voice against chiming guitars. Despite its title, “Pissed Pants” is another gentle reverie. With Total Heat.
