Birthday Suits 

Friday, February 1, at the Beachland Tavern.

Birthday Suits is sorta like a Minneapolis version of the Black Keys. Except the two guys who play the guitar and drums are Japanese. And they're way artier. But the lo-fi stomp of their noise-squawk boasts a similar primitivism, never quite settling into one specific genre. Their songs usually start with twisty, bluesy riffs before everything breaks down into a heap of smoldering feedback and mile-a-minute drum snaps. Birthday Suits has logged quite a few miles since the release of its debut album, Cherry Blue, back in 2005. It has three seven-inch records due over the next few months. You're likely to hear cuts from the discs when the duo comes to town this week.
