(Comet) A rock-solid night of solid rock here. Olympia's Broken Water unleash a tough brand of shoegaze rock that has more GRRR in its DNA than la la la. Somehow they evoke both the Swirlies and Love Battery. Check out their front-to-back platter of heat, Tempest, on Hardly Art Records. Haunted Horses kick out rampaging, coal-black rock with lethal goth undertones. Truth be told, they're Seattle's Liars (every city needs at least one). As for Jetman Jet Team, I've said it before and I'll say it again: They are one of Seattle's most exciting live rock experiences, a kaleidoscopic krautgaze whirlwind of youthful abandon and nuanced melody-mongering. Enter their Dreamachine-y domain.
