Darwin Deez, Crushed Out, Body Games

When: Thu., June 6, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Former Chapel Hill resident Darwin Smith moved to New York and launched Darwin Deez, a light dance-pop outfit that debuted in 2010 with a well-received batch of flimsy funk-rock. Smith has since relocated to Asheville, from which he released Songs for Imaginative People in February. These songs suggest that Smith—who has added decidedly more aggressive guitar to his once-lithe numbers—is hiding from his feelings, dressing up genuinely interesting introspection in gimmicks of silly videos and ham-fisted hooks. With Crushed Out and Body Games. —Grayson Currin
