 BY JOHN B. MOORE

 Calling to mind everyone from Dinosaur Jr. to The Pixies, Boston indie noise rockers follow up last year’s great full length, Major Arcana, with the solid, but frustratingly short vinyl 12” EP Real Hair (it’s also available digitally).

 The four-song tease, finds the band pretty much were they left off last year, churning our great indie rock songs backed by swirling distorted guitars. This set is over before you realize it, but the result if four more rugged songs added to the band’s cannon. The two best are the opener “American Horror” and “Everything’s Bigger,” one of the band’s strongest songs so far, and a great showcase for Sadie Dupuis’s vocal. But the others are almost as good.

 Now we just bide our time for the next full length.
