Liz B broadcast a live set from Cryptacize today on her new afternoon timeslot. Cryptacize is the new project of Chris Cohen (ex-Deerhoof), Nedelle Torisi (Kill Rock Stars solo artist), and Michael Carreira (YouTube cowbell player extraordinaire).Taking its roots from Cohen's earlier project The Curtains, Cryptacize crystallized across from the C&H Sugar Factory in Crockett, CA. Their sweet mini-pop elements get twisted around as Chris Cohen's guitar chops weave their way around Nedelle's vocals, punctuated by Michael's percussion grab-bag.
Cryptacize is touring their way through Tennessee and Texas towards Los Angeles, then flying to Europe for some more shows in early July. Tourdates are posted on their myspace. They'll have copies of their Asthmattic Kitty debut Dig That Treasure, and their Unusual Animals Vol. 4 split 7'' with Why? (featuring a great cover of "Peg" by Steely Dan!).
