Merchandise

Tampa's Merchandise may come from a breezy, sunny clime, but their latest album, Children of Desire, is six tracks of positively cloudy yet catchy indie-pop. Lead singer Carson Cox intones like a mix of King Morrissey and Chris Isaak, evoking early New Order but mostly 2008's lost Glaswegian act Glasvegas. "In Nightmare Room" should be Merchandise's calling card, more than five minutes of sturdy '80s alternative history wrapped up in a downbeat package.
