Interfuse 

Closed Doors Open Tracks (Tragic End Records)

With dissonant, ear-bleeding guitar set against alternately hoarse and honeyed come-ons from husband-and-wife duo Lisa and Nick Cardarelli, Interfuse initially sounds like a lean, mean Sonic Youth. But unlike the nonlinear jams of New York City's finest, Interfuse's raw-lunged rock and roll lunges straight for your windpipe.

On Closed Doors, Open Tracks, this bunch displays a knack for finding melody in mayhem. "Time to start a riot, just a little riot" Lisa coos as slashing guitars knife into her pretty voice on "Oh My God, Don't Do It Thomas." With one breathless rock shit fit following the next, the album never lets up -- and you never want it to. The Akron four-piece is the first band Nightbreed frontman Ray Terry has signed to his Tragic End Records, and its debut foretells good things for the upstart label: Interfuse is poised to kick any Closed Doors right off their hinges.
