Austin Lucas, Damion Suomi & the Minor Prophets

When: Sun., June 6, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Lucas' parched tenor sweeps like an arctic blast across the plains. It harks to an agrarian age, spare in its simplicity, naked but for the picked guitar or banjo strum. He recalls Palace Brothers-era Will Oldham, with similar themes of bereft ache and bruised longing. Lucas played in crusty punk acts for several years during his youth before embracing folk music like his father, Bob. Suomi, meanwhile, plays rousing, Irish-tinged country-folk with a crooning wail that recalls Michael Stipe, a metaphor-rich tone cadged from Conor Oberst and a melodic flair reminiscent of The Avett Brothers. —Chris Parker
