Mimicking Birds (Back Room)

When: Fri., Sept. 11, 9 p.m. 2015

Given that Mimicking Birds have toured with Modest Mouse and are signed to Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace imprint, one might think the Portland band parrots Brock’s herky-jerk indie rock. But Mimicking Birds instead echo the ethereal folk of Fleet Foxes. Singer-guitarist Nate Lacy’s songs go quietly, as if anything above a whisper would blow apart their barely there latticework. It’s as if Lacy only half-commits to being heard, and his songs are half as compelling as a result. —Patrick Wall

Price: $8-$10
