Soft Company, Bear Hands

When: Fri., Nov. 5, 10 p.m. 2010

Raleigh's Soft Company finds The Love Language keyboardist Missy Thangs with a batch of strong pop hooks at her disposal, as well as a crew of local gents who've previously helped sharpen the barbs of the Huguenots, Luego, Lake Inferior and Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies. The harmony-loaded and jangle-filled results are effervescent paeans to lost love. Making its Triangle debut, opener Bear Hands is truly deserving of its slow-building buzz: Often suggesting Modest Mouse on an energy-drink rush, the Brooklyn quartet fashions a melodic, accessible blend of post-punk and indie rock from angular guitars, stuttering disco beats and yelped vocals. —Spencer Griffith
