Toddlers, Sin Ropas, Father Murphy

When: Wed., Sept. 8, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Sin Ropas evoke a spirit similar to leader Tim Hurley's old band Red Red Meat (and perhaps even more, its off-shoot, Califone), wrapping noisy, atmospheric sputter and squall around somber roots rock. Guitar skronk and processed effects whine like a slow-burn apocalypse as Hurley's gruff baritone intones with reverent gravitas reminiscent of Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse. Their latest, Holy Broken, tones down the distancing clamor in favor of an oft-lulling creep. Italian openers Father Murphy's cacophonous theatricality travels in nightmarish fits and starts. Also, The Toddlers.—Chris Parker
