Orlando rockers Transcendental Telecom’s latest EP, Escaped from Shred City, is a four-song set that surely cops some licks from Pavement and Stephen Malkmus’ solo work, but that’s OK. Melodic tunes like “Cinema” and “Chrome Babe” stand on their own two feet and, quite frankly, the dudes in Transcendental Telecom had to have been wee lads when Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was released. An acknowledgement of time passing, which suddenly bums us out.
