Minor Stars, Megafauna, Fake Swedish (Back Room)

When: Wed., June 10, 9 p.m. 2015

Minor Stars’ 2010 debut, The Death of the Sun in the Silver Sea, remains the Chapel Hill band’s only album. At least it’s aged well, as its burly mutations of sludgy psych-rock align with the meaty rock that’s found favor on metal’s fringes. Given Deafheaven’s post-black metal hypnotism and Kylesa’s recent sleekness, the record’s slicing hooks and heaven-seeking riffs feel more of the here and now than when it came out. Once somewhat ahead of the curve, perhaps Minor Stars can rise with their in-progress sophomore effort. —Jordan Lawrence
