Filthybird CD release, Organos, Calico Haunts

When: Fri., Oct. 15, 10 p.m. 2010

These three bands take distinct approaches to songwriting and arranging. Organos sprinkles almost child-like fragments of melody over simple rhythms and chords, the parts intertwining playfully but addictively. Calico Haunts take root with rugged, earnest reflections and paint them carefully in sepia-toned psychedelic drift. The most rigorous, diverse and mature band here, Filthybird showcases a half-dozen looks on its second LP, the forthcoming and fantastic, Songs For Other People. The peppy "Pick Me Up" moves with the cool assurance of a Carol King classic, while "Mostly of Waves" suggests Beach House reworking Radiohead. Though by different routes, each band here leaves songs that leave impressions. —Grayson Currin
