As of this year, the Massachusetts group Kahoots is 19 years old, and their music — appropriately enough — captures that combination of assurance and awkwardness that exists on the border of adolescence and adulthood. On “I’d Say,” from the forthcoming Take it to the Fields, frontman Rob Myers’s voice leaps determinedly, again and again, over a thorny tangle of guitars, and the song rocks and sways like a dorm room sea shanty. Flutes swoop in, Myers ably swings from sincerity to sarcasm, and the entire song radiates character and charm.
