Transfer

Faded Signal

Rising from the ashes of Chico jam band Ten Pound Brown, San Diego's Transfer is already a fan favorite in its hometown and deserves to get noticed with this debut full-length. The band, which was nominated for a San Diego Music Award for Best Alternative last year, first released a seven-song EP, only one track of which ("Hard Upon the Eyes") found its way onto Faded Signal. Singer Matt Molarius channels Jeff Buckley's tortured vibrato throughout, while the songs run the gamut from ambient, slide-guitar jams to big, fuzzed-out rockers, a range that should appeal to fans of Built to Spill and Pinback. In fact, Transfer was booked as the opening act when Pinback played a 20,000-seat amphitheater in San Diego last summer. And if the reverb-drenched melancholia that pervades Faded Signalcatches on, the band could be headed for an arena tour of its own.
