Detective Agency

The mostly femme garage-pop outfit of Ulrika Larsson, Gwen Stubbs, Amy Tisdale, and Nate Kruz recently self-released Daggers, an EP of five songs that jump back and forth between sweet and harmonic and shadowy and ominous. On songs like "Empty Apartment" and "Summer Song," the initial cheeriness of the jangling guitars and Tisdale's chanting vocal lines are undercut by a darkly thrumming bass and Kruz's slow and low backing vocals. It's a catchy juxtaposition that makes Detective Agency one of the most interesting and appealing bands playing in Seattle right now. With Pony Time, Redbook. ERIN K. THOMPSON
