Leagues, Foreign Fields

When: Sat., Oct. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Former Triangle resident Thad Cockrell now fronts Nashville trio Leagues, which finds Cockrell deviating from the familiar territory of alt-country fare into indie-imbued pop-rock. Though the group plans to release a full-length early next year, its lone recording to date—a three-song, self-titled EP—coats the handclaps and harmonies of classic power pop with a modern gloss. "Mind Games" is the spirited standout, leveraging the vintage feel of its soaring melody with a snappy rhythm and layers of chiming guitars and rousing horns. Wisconsin five-piece Foreign Fields opens; they channel the crisp chill of their home state with shimmering, electronically infused folk. —Spencer Griffith
