Horse Feathers, Matt Bauer

When: Tue., May 15, 9 p.m. 2012

Horse Feathers' Justin Ringle isn't exactly known for his cheerful jingles, but he's not one to sound jaded, either. That balance is hard to pull off when you're a folk-minded Oregonian songwriter with a knack for lush melodies and dark imagery. Even so, on the aptly titled new Horse Feathers record, Cynic's New Year, Ringle explores his skeptical side while maintaining the elegant, string-laden arrangements of 2008's House with No Home and 2010's Thistled Spring. Opener Matt Bauer's music plays similarly with darkness and beauty. The Kentuckian's banjo-driven, haunting narrative tunes are a lovely and unsettling take on traditional folk music. —Ashley Melzer
