Lilac Shadows album release, Airstrip, Jenny Besetzt, DJ David Mueller

When: Sat., March 31, 10 p.m. 2012

In previous projects, Sam Logan has erred on the side of pop orthodoxy, letting bright hooks beam with a little too much polish and perfection. In Lilac Shadows, though, he and a crew of excellent backers refract the rays a bit, letting melodies anchor six-minute explorations rather than three-minute exercises. This music is immersive and addictive, baiting you back toward its heat-wave radiance with songs that stick. Tonight they'll release the promising Shallow Madness EP through fantastic local imprint DiggUp Tapes, and they'll be in good company: Airstrip's coiled hooks come with more wallop than necessary (which is appreciated), while Jenny Besetzt warps its songs with warmth. David Mueller spins records between sets. —Grayson Currin
