It's Just Vanity, Monoslang

When: Mon., Aug. 8, 9 p.m. 2011

Onetime Chapel Hill troupe It's Just Vanity combine the delicate and difficult sides of math-y post-punk. They're equally adept at atmospheric music forged from intricate latticeworks of guitar and crashing blasts of slashing angularity, though they have more of a preference for the former. The vocals veer between a spoken style reminiscent of early Cursive and keening declamations that recall Braid. Led by Louis Erazo and Kelson Fagan, they initially formed in New Jersey, really came to life while attending school in Chapel Hill, and have now decamped to Chicago, a near-ground-zero for many of their mid-'90s influences. —Chris Parker
