It seems that in today's ever-expansive musical climate, any band that employs guitars and defies any obvious genre categorization is usually placed in the "Indie" section at your local record store. This Brooklyn-based trio's catalog would probably be found there. The Can't Tells approach to music is simple, as the band's website succinctly declares: "We are a band...We are loud." This may be true, but beneath the vociferous volume levels, there is generally a well-crafted, albeit concise, take on modern alternative rock. The band's newest single, "Lying To Myself," from the upcoming album "No Television," comes in at just over two minutes, but packs a legitimate punch.
The Can't Tells perform Thursday, August 30, 7:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
