  • Miles Rattz plays Round 4 of the Showcase, Thursday at Stickyz.

Miles Rattz, a.k.a. Michael Chavez, makes lo-frills bedroom pop that charts the same warped, weirdo waters as Ariel Pink was wading around in back when he got started.

Chavez's "Fought Songs" EP is four tracks that recreate the feeling of lying on the couch with two stereos in two different rooms playing two different R. Stevie Moore cassettes at the same time, but you're too, uh, compromised to get up and turn one of them off.

Check out "Hotel Staytion" for a dose of Nilsson-in-a-funhouse-mirror pop charm.
