Russian Tsarlag, Jeff Zagers, Justin Clifford, Rhody

When: Sun., Oct. 23, 9 p.m. 2016

With antecedents that range from eighties lo-fi pop savants like Cleaners From Venus to the anarchic no-wave crunch of Suicide, Providence’s Russian Tsarlag has mastered the art of elegant, irrevocably damaged minimalist pop. Its excellent new record, Unexplained American Goat, just dropped on Wharf Cat and sounds like someone crooning sui generis pop hits into an iPhone voice memo app from underneath a Brueggers dumpster—in the best way. —David Ford Smith
