Rrest, Atlanta's wooziest purveyors of smoky, melancholic pop, just dropped their self-titled debut and have sweetened the deal by issuing a third single from the set. "Goodnight, Chanteal" (streaming below), follows the buzzed, after-hours rock of "Recycle Bins" and "Untitled (Sandy)" while reserving a more retro, psychedelic slant. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Wes Ables' vocals seem beamed in via short-wave radio, offering only the bare-bones melody soundtracked by the unhurried, uncluttered instrumentation. The song's breakdown unarguably resembles that of the Beatles' "I'm So Tired," revealing a phantom pedigree that other acts might try to deny. Guitarist Andrew Teems' plays his busted blues with a refined hand and seen-it-all confidence that drives the tune's resolved existence home, with Ables offering "Let's make out all the way to your car 'cause I'm not sure how this will all end." Good luck, buddy. Rrest celebrates the album's release party tonight (Fri., Oct. 11) at the Earl.

Rrest, Book Club, and Sea Fix. $7. Tonight (Oct. 11). 8 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950
