Active Child, Low Roar

When: Thu., June 11, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Pat Grossi possesses a fluttering falsetto, effortlessly high and so solemn it’s sort of silly. On early Active Child songs, the former choirboy combined harp strums with big, synthetic beats—a would-be juxtaposition of the sacred and profane that failed to startle. He worked on his new record, Mercy, with Blonde Redhead and Fever Ray producer Van Rivers, who keeps the arrangements sparse and out of Grossi’s way. Depending on your tolerance for earnest emoting post helium-gulp, this comes for better or worse. —Jeff Klingman
