Forest Tourist at The Milestone tonight (6/5/2012)

Notable for its carnival-funhouse keys, fuzzed-out guitars and energetic tempos

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 bandcamp.com visit; its extended bridge/outro also suggests there's more to the songwriting than just "trash" or "pop." Bright future? Quite possibly. With locals the Orchidales, Secret Hospital and Such Mad Hope, as well as New Orleans' Habitat. $7. The Milestone.
