When: Thu., July 18, 9 p.m. 2013

The mutant R&B the brothers Daniel and Andrew Aged make under the name inc. has a secret weapon that many of the indie acts who've made such bedroom music in their actual bedrooms don't: substantial technical skill. Indeed, the brothers have played and recorded with, according to The Guardian in 2011, "everyone from Elton John and Beck to Cee Lo Green, Pharrell and Raphael Saadiq." That résumé reflects in the intricacy of their work, which treats melodies like lace meant to be wrapped around tessellated beats. Their bass lines are generous and complex, and their compositions unwrap to reveal careful layers not only made of tape hiss and simple synthesizer burble. With Kelela and DJ Total Freedom. —Grayson Currin
