Twilighter, Salt to Bitters

When: Thu., Feb. 17, 10 p.m. 2011

Tony Raver's anguished wail recalls early Bright Eyes, an emotionally wrought weapon with which he does most of his damage. The music circles warily 'round his wild-eyed paeans. Strummy acoustic guitars and banjos slash and burn beneath a waxy Rhodes organ moon sometimes trailed by pedal steel, a perfect twilight backdrop for Raver's discontent. The songs are pregnant with foreboding and slow-burn shuffle, making the implicit impending doom that much more oppressive. Raver's vocals sound broken, bewildered and on the run, as if pursued by the avenging hitman of No Country For Old Men. —Chris Parker
