Fake Surfers, the fourth album from Seattle’s junk-punk, noise-pop foursome the Intelligence, begins like the opening scene from The Godfather.

There’s no telling if the same languid pace will dominate the record, or if it will suddenly burst into a cacophony of crunching, art-rock kerang. But the tension soon breaks as a wall of ecstatic guitars take hold in “Tower.”
