Deep Sleep, Infección

When: Tue., May 1, 8 p.m. 2012

In sound and execution, Baltimore's Deep Sleep offers a lesson in concision. Last year's Turn Me Off races through its 10 tracks in little more than 13 minutes, trimming every ounce of fat from the band's hook-heavy throttling. In its nods to genre standards—Descendents, Black Flag, 7 Seconds, et al.—Deep Sleep finds a balance of melody and force, coupling no-frills riffs with sinewy fills. "Nothing Inside," for example, repurposes the immortal "Rise Above" riff into a feel-good rock anthem. Local powerhouse Infección is similarly pop-minded, but the new unit delivers hooks in tangled bursts of trebly guitar and counter-melodic bass lines that owe as much to fragmented art-pop as to spastic hardcore. —Bryan Reed
