Ponderosa, Yip Deceiver, Prypyat

When: Wed., July 17, 9 p.m. 2013

Atlanta four-piece Ponderosa clings to the walls of the same Southern rock time warp that's pushed bands such as My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses and even Alabama Shakes to fame in recent years. Like Band of Horses, they favor a woozy romanticism, with sudden dramatic shifts in the framework; but like My Morning Jacket, they're interested in textures beyond the prototypical rock 'n' roll toolkit, adding layers of reverb, distortion and electronics to embolden their approach. Last year's Pool Party indeed suggested both a late-night aquatic bacchanal and the next day's bleary-eyed come-down, with muted blues serving as the requisite sidecars for overblown excess. With Yip Deceiver. —Grayson Currin
