An Occasion For Balloons, Band & the Beat, TLVS

When: Fri., Feb. 19, 9 p.m. 2016

Late last year, An Occasion for Balloons—the with-friends project of peripatetic Chapel Hill songwriter, crooner, and dreamer Nate Wagner—issued an eight-song, self-titled set. Floating between ambient instrumental drift, refracted college rock themes, and distortion-softened pop, the wondrous little cassette seemed to suspend listeners inside Wagner’s peculiar dream world, where beats and notes bent at the oddest angles. Released in an edition of only twenty-five, An Occasion suggested an idiosyncratic arranger, charmingly underselling his vision. —Grayson Haver Currin
