FOREST TOURIST Self-described “trash-pop” from the increasingly fertile Charleston, S.C., indie scene, this young quartet’s music is notable for its carnival-funhouse keys, fuzzed-out guitars, energetic tempos and singer Edward Burroughs’ half-slacker/half-crooner vocals (is that some Julian Casablancas I hear in there?). The lead single “Winnebago Dreams” off their new EP, Pop Reject, has been a show-topping anthem in the band’s hometown, and is well-worth a visit; its extended bridge/outro also suggests there’s more to the songwriting than just “trash” or “pop.” Bright future? Quite possibly. (John Schacht)

Price: $7-$9
