Cheatahs: Mythologies (Wichita)

Cheatahs Mythologies (Wichita Recordings)

Cheatahs specialize in hazy, echo-y sounds, most recently fleshed out on Mythologies. The backward-sounding, Poltergeist-like vocals of “Red Lake” set the tone for the album, which carves distinction amidst fuzz and walls of pedals on “Freak Waves.” Not to say there aren’t moments of complete distortion (“Colorado”) or layers upon layers of reverb (such as on “Supra”). Cheatahs’ music is meant to be listened to as a whole and always has a hummable nugget at its core.

Watch the official video for “Signs To Lorelei.”
