Supreme Fiction, Semi Formal, Calico Haunts

When: Thu., Aug. 12, 9 p.m. 2010

Chapel Hill quartet Supreme Fiction isn't easily pigeonholed. The sweet harmonies and groovy paisley vibe suggest '60s folk-rock revivalism, only balanced by expansive art rock experimentation that transforms the shiny happy bounce into something a bit more heady and idiosyncratic. Meanwhile, Daniel Lawrence's lyrics are equal parts narrative and woolly dream journal, with sure hooks that pull through their shape(ly)-shifting passages. Semi-Formal delivers ramshackle, lingering country-rock like a lovelorn, slightly belligerent drunk with a hard-luck story. They're rough around the edges, but honestly, earnestly endearing.—Chris Parker
