Caspian, Junius, MAKE

When: Sat., Feb. 16, 8 p.m. 2013

Being surprised by the sounds on a post-rock record in 2013 might be one of the biggest, well, surprises I've had lately as listener. But that's the case for last year's Waking Season, the lengthy and rewarding third album by Massachusetts instrumentalists Caspian. Though it explores the slow builds and sudden payoffs you might expect from that subgenre association, Caspian works through a core of modernity, not only augmenting its guitars with thoughtful electronics but also giving the rising action and the textures that bolster it as much attention as the coda. What's best, Caspian seems invigorated by making this music, replacing the form's usual solemn genuflection with gestures of exaltation. Junius and MAKE open. —Grayson Currin
