Killer Filler, Small Ponds

When: Sat., Feb. 18, 10 p.m. 2012

Sweet folk duo Small Ponds mint lilting Laurel Canyon folk. It's pretty, low-key music highlighted by the gentle harmonies of Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown, Tres Chicas) and Matt Douglas (The Proclivities). They released their debut self-titled EP in 2010, showcasing an understated charm epitomized by the slinky "Gypsy Cards," which suggests a dub version of Steve Miller's "Abracadabra." Killer Filler are what their name suggests and so much more. Led by ex-SCOTS keyboardist Chris Bess, they're an instrumental quintet at the intersection of surf, garage and R&B. It's a lively neighborhood where there's equal room for conversation and shaking it loose. —Chris Parker
