MAKE, Yek Koo, Heavy Hymns, WXYC DJs

When: Fri., Feb. 5, 9 p.m. 2016

This show serves as a release party for WXYCzine, a best-of-2015 print compendium compiled by UNC’s WXYC-FM. Loaded with interviews, essays, art, and lists, it’s an interesting project boosted here by a fascinating bill. Local headliners MAKE commingle doom metal and psychedelic rock, giving their heavy tones a wonderfully astral lift. The dense and often abrasive guitar-and-voice paroxysms of New York’s yek koo are fascinating, the audio equivalent of staring at an expressionist painting until shapes and stories spill out. Fellow New York traveler Heavy Hymns opens with meditative guitar-and-keys vistas. —Grayson Haver Currin
