The last several days, a number of music blogs were abuzz with the song “Time To Go Home,” the title song to the new album by the Chastity Belt out on March 24th on Hardly Art records.
Featuring guitarists Julia Shapiro (the singer and primary songwriter) and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm, the band are from the Seattle area, Walla Walla, Washington. They released their debut album, No Regrets, which got favorable reviews when it was self-released in 2013, following two EPs they released in 2012 (available on their Bandcamp page). About their new album, Ann Powers from NPR Music says: “The music is an indie-rock swirl of guitars and careening drums that recalls the team efforts of classic bands like the Raincoats.”
Below, download the title song to “Time To Go.” It’s a heartfelt, straight forward rock and roll song, touched by punk, fuzzy guitars, and reverbed vocals that just hits all the right chords.
