New York band Charly Bliss applies just enough snarl and filth to guitarist/vocalist Eva Hendricks' clear, slashing hooks, yielding songs that bruise and brighten in equal measure. Each of the 10 track on the band's 2017 debut album, Guppy, comes across with startling focus, especially "Black Hole," a song that teeters between euphoria and torment, between messy confession and cutting right to the point. It's a rare band that can make you feel this swept up this fast. Charly Bliss shares the bill here with fellow New Yorkers Active Bird Community and with Madison band Disq, whose recent track "Communication" landed among our favorite Madison singles of 2018. —Scott Gordon
