Skinny Bones are pleasantly weird on "Noise Floor"

Skinny Bones are pleasantly weird on "Noise Floor"

Upon opening Skinny Bones’ Bandcamp page, one is greeted by “Sleep In,” a track that is understated and yet sparkles with unique production tics. A ghastly pitch-shifted backing vocal supports the primary melody from below, an inexplicable crackle comes in and out during the chorus – and at 3:25, it all swells before disappearing like an apparition into a wonky bass line. The song is just one from their latest album, Noise Floor, a nine-track collection unleashed on May 6. Later on the set is “Jamaica Plain,” a delightfully odd tribute to the Boston neighborhood with a simple repeated hook: “Oh my J-J-JP.” Grab Noise Floor for a price of your choosing (yes, that includes free) and catch the band at T.T. the Bear’s Place in Cambridge, MA, this Friday. – Jake Reed, @jakejreed
