  •  BAND: THE FOUR CORNERS

      The Four Corners
    Corners report

    The Athens-based Four Corners converge on the Village for a night combining yesteryear hip and now urgency.

    By ROBIN EISGRAU

    The Four Corners are a band out of Athens, Georgia, with a sound that's undeniably sleek and infectious. Grounded in the mod sound of the '60s but by no means trapped there, this quintet's songs fuse grooving and sophistication into a throughly modern sounding formation.

    On their freshly released CD, "Say You're A Scream" (on Kindercore Records) they put forth a tight blend of yesteryear hip and now urgency. Just try and stop shimmying to the sweeping rhythm of the way-cool title cut — bet you can't. Tracy Hatch's vocals have a graceful sheen and the guitar work of Ryan Lewis and the mysteriously named Ice is throughly skillful. Hatch's Farfisa playing adds a retro-colorful flourish to their tunes.

    Aside from their finely-honed originals, The Four Corners lend their hand to a few covers, most notably the chestnut "Long Tall Shorty" and the Stooges classic "No Fun."

    They'll be appearing the the Village Underground on the 25th on one of the increasingly popular Cavestomp shows, this one headlined by quintessential garage-psych geezers The Pretty Things and featuring appearances by The Cynics and Mondo Topless, who should shake things up quite a bit.
