Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Cryptacize: Nedelle Torrisi (vocals, guitar, autoharp, strings); Chris Cohen (vocals, guitar); Michael Carreira (harmonica, drums).
Muze PNote Recording information: New Improved Recording, Oakland, CA.
Muze PNote This California trio's debut full-length, DIG THAT TREASURE, is a wholly unique masterpiece of minimalist indie pop and patiently timed songwriting. Ex-Deerhoof guitarist Chris Cohen provides scratchy but spare guitar flourishes that expand and contract like bellows to a flame, chanteuse Nedelle Torrisi delivers a sweet counterbalance with pitch-perfect melodic grace, and drummer Michael Carreira keeps the tempos loose but incessant with inspired offhand percussion choices. As with Deerhoof, Cryptacize's obvious joy in their craft infectiously carries over to the listener.

Engineer: Cryptacize; Jacob Heule

Artist Overview

Cryptacize's elliptical, experimental indie pop isn't all that cryptic, considering the involvement of former Deerhoof guitarist Chris Cohen and playful vocalist/instrumentalist Nedelle Torrisi. The pair first collaborated on Cohen's Curtains project, with Torrisi chipping in vocals on 2006's Calamity. Cohen and Torrisi discovered percussionist Michael Carreira via a video of him playing cowbell on YouTube. After recruiting Carreira, the trio became Cryptacize, and began playing and recording in 2007. Cryptacize released their debut album, Dig That Treasure, in early 2008. That summer, Cryptacize retreated to a cabin near Yosemite National Park to record their second album, Mythomania (2009), which featured fuller instrumentation and more structured songs. ~ Heather Phares

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.94)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "Cryptacize artfully navigate the dusty corners of naive rock, a semi-dormant genre whose line runs from the Velvet Underground through Beat Happening..."

Harp (magazine)
- "There's a fragility to this irresistible music that belies carefully considered and structurally sound arrangements."
