The Eastern Sea, Wool

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 9 p.m. 2013

It's easy enough to forgive—hell, even enjoy—excess and indulgence in music. Rock 'n' roll is built on overdoing it, a feeling found in every great guitar solo. But The Eastern Sea, a large band from Austin, simply overthinks every line, meter and melody of its flatly sophisticated indie rock. The words are so painfully poetic they make Okkervil River read like street-speak; the arrangements make matters worse, with their clothes fastened so tightly they never manage to breathe. With Wool. —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $8-10
