Bahamas, The Weather Station (Back Room)

When: Fri., Sept. 19, 9:30 p.m. 2014

As The Weather Station, Toronto singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman makes placid music about fretful searches—for love, for contentment, for something more stable than the changing chords of a three-minute folk song. If that tension was a ripple on the 2011 LP All of It Was Mine, it's turned into waves for the forthcoming What Am I Going to Do with Everything I Know?, a transfixing seven-song set due in October. In her hushed and smooth voice, Lindeman reveals that she's found a partner and, with him, a load of bittersweet feelings, caused by the disruption of solitude and the need to present herself as something new in a world she already knows. "I wouldn't want to see him through your eyes," she eases out at one point. "I only want to see him through mine." Lindeman has the methodical patience of recent Bill Callahan and the ease with complex phrasings of The Clientele's Alasdair MacLean, traits that make her one of the continent's most stunning young singers. She opens for Bahamas, another Toronto band that makes incisive and electrified folk-rock, like Jack Johnson leaving the shore and the sun for the studio. —Grayson Haver Currin
