Not owning the Carnivores' material is harder than owning it. The Atlanta quartet made it abundantly easy to stock up on its claustrophobic melodies by offering the four-song Chandelier EP via Bandcamp or a Mediafire link.
If the title track's speedy R&B bass line and guitar stabs are a little too disorienting (not to these ears), smooth out with "Darker Days." "Your hands are so cold, like Jack the Ripper," begins the refrain. That and other devilishly clever moments will surely dominate the pair of South Florida shows beginning this evening at Laser Wolf and moving up to Propaganda on Friday. We loved 'em back in January.
Need some more? Cop umpteen tracks at the band's Soundcloud page, or plumb the depths of its Bandcamp archives for another couple of albums.
