What’s Your Rup­ture? Tex-New York­ers Austin Brown and An­drew Sav­age (also of the ex­cel­lent Fer­gus & Geron­imo) are high on a buzz, and that’s good news for all. Light Up Gold is a smart and spry garage-rock humdinger that moves at warp speed from one ca­su­ally cast-off peach to the next. Most of the songs don’t hang around any longer than two min­utes, but that’s plenty of time for the pair to get in, make a great, breath­less, im­pres­sive clat­ter, throw down some killer lines (the sneered “for­get about it!” cho­rus on Master of My Craft is a thing of beauty) and get out again. That said, one of the best mo­ments is Stoned and Starv­ing, the duo lurch­ing about for a five-minute ce­les­tial drone search­ing for a cure for the munchies. par­quet­courts. word Down­load: Bor­rowed Time, Stoned and Starv­ing, Master of My Craft
