Cryptacize makes songs that are playful, tuneful, daring, and surprising. Did the songs really come from a magical book, as the band suggests? It seems plausible.

Guitarist Chris Cohen used to play with Deerhoof, and he retains some of that exacting wildness. Singer Nedelle Torrisi has one of the most precise and plangent voices around. Together with bassist Aaron Olson and drummer Corey Fogel they set their songs loose in the WNYC Studio, and talk with host David Garland.
