With titles like “Anything to Hurt You,” “You Can’t Just Stop Being Cruel” and “Dragging Me to Hell,” the track list of Ski Lodge's recent debut, Big Heart, reads like a collection of frustrated notes to an ex. But if you’re expecting an LP filled with dissonance and hatred, think again. Even when Andrew Marr’s lyrics plunge into despair and self-pity, Big Heart’s tone remains refreshingly playful and charming. Here, Marr & Co. top the bill in Bushwick.
