Lines Across Lines 

Octopussy (Turkeyhand)

You won't find Lines Across Lines' debut EP on the shelves of your local record store. In fact, you won't find CD or vinyl copies of it anywhere. The group is releasing Octopussy digitally, with an iPod-release gig to kick things off. It's a terrific concept: Fans bring their MP3 players to the show and pay to upload the files. The record is definitely worth the cash and bytes. The quartet plays crunchy, melodic indie rock that manages to keep things groovy, even on the darker tunes. And in the chilling "Letter to a Dying City," singer Chris Wright addresses his Cleveland hometown: "It feels like the only way to get anyone to notice is to say goodbye." We prefer this grand hello.
