Get Him Eat Him

If Providence, Rhode Island, quintet Get Him Eat Him sounded as threatening as their name implies, it would be easy to misconstrue them as a band more aligned with their hometown's Load Records — a shrill, predatory beast feasting on the blood squirting from busted eardrums. Actually, Get Him Eat Him is as non-threatening as they come. Their light-on-the-ears and lighthearted brand of short, straightforward and blissful bursts of indie power-pop contain the contemporary sensibilities of The Wrens or Ted Leo. Latest release Arms Down, their second, is stuffed with the kind of punchy, optimistic, summery spirit that might make you forget you just got dumped on the last day of school.
