Sasha Frere-Jones said it well: if you miss Fripp-Eno eBow guitar styles, check Citay, who foolishly did NOT call their album “Livin’ For The.”

Ezra Feinberg & Co. would be also well-served with “New Jack Citay”(M.O.P. version), “Bright Lights Big Citay” (Capo cover) or “Built This Citay” (Diplomats not Jefferson Starship).  I interviewed Citay’s frontman for the Times last week. If you’re into pretty prog-rock filled with gravity bong guitar solos, this may be for you. Their last album, Little Kingdom was my 29th favorite of 07 and according to Feinberg, the new one features heavier guitars, Galaxie 500 covers, and free tabs of orange sunshine.
