Staff Pick: Cults at Skully's

Bands get a lot of mileage out of mystery. Consider Cults, the Brooklyn duo whose every move is being chronicled online by indie music's tastemakers in part because the band makes so few moves. There's no Facebook, MySpace or Twitter, just a Bandcamp page offering a free download of the band's debut 7-inch. Those three tracks comprise a stellar set of singsong chants filtered through the echo chamber and bolstered by rich retro arrangements like half-remembered dreams. Chicago's Light Pollution and recently ordained Band to Watch Andrew Graham & Swarming Branch will open.
