For over a decade, Johnny Whitney and Cody Votolato were members of the Seattle aggregate The Blood Brothers, a band whose immolation of the hardcore blueprint and a forward-in-all-directions aesthetic gained them a league of ardent fans. As a member of Pretty Girls Make Graves, J Clark brought noise, texture and pop sensibilities to three albums before the band adjourned two years ago.

Take Me To The Sea's 10 tracks are bracing and alluring, and as surreal as they are anthemic. The opening chugger, “Highways Of Gold,” was one of the first songs the trio ever wrote, successfully navigating the rails between speeding-ticket frenzy and perfect pop forever. “Bats Over The Pacific Ocean” was Whitney’s take on a folk ditty, but when his bandmates got on it, the tune was transformed into the amphetamine-abusing great-grandson of the Moody Blues’ “Question.” The Votolato-initiated “Vagabond Ballroom” will sound great alongside such neo-classic-rockers as the Mars Volta and the Raconteurs. Clark’s Hammond and hard-drive powered “Humans Evolve Into Skyscrapers” ponders a world where Joe Cocker’s classic Mad Dogs And Englishmen cavalcade returns from the past to share a train ride with Daft Punk.
