Old Bricks, Filthybird

When: Thu., May 3, 9 p.m. 2012

It's been three years since Old Bricks released their debut album, Farmers. A collection of songs equal parts haunting textures and fragile vocals, that record offered proof positive that founding duo Stuart Edwards and Andy Holmes were onto something. Their new album, City Lights (available since last year, but officially out May 8 on Grip Tapes), trades the singer-songwriter-focused melancholic folk of their first for a fog of swelling melodies, shouts and spasmodic rhythms. Old Bricks' distortion pairs well with the sly Americana-pop verve of Filthybird. Anchored by Brian Haran's entrancing guitar and propelled by Renee Mendoza's magnetic vocals, the band's songs billow and burst with irrepressible charm. —Ashley Melzer
