Noise Pop 21 Califone, Radar Bros, Dana Falconberry, Black WhalesSOLD OUT
Austin singer-songwriter Dana Falconberry needs little more than her serenely scratchy vocals and an effecting minimalist folk melody to bring her passionate, expressive songs to life. Still, it doesn’t hurt none that her last album, 2012’s “Leelanau,” gets the full band treatment, courtesy of Falconberry’s newly formed ensemble. With this new layer of depth given to the songstresses tales of natural wonder and rural longings, the compositions throughout “Leelanau” are Falconberry’s most creative, most adventurous outings yet.

Seattle’s Black Whales are an indie rock psychedelic treat. More pop and less mushroom-inhaling sixties type of psychedelia, with lyrics that you can relate to and tracks that gracefully build to a rock and roll climax. The new single, “Vietnam,” finds the band taking a darker turn, with fuzzy guitar reminiscent of the best Brian Jonestown Massacre recordings. Be prepared for dreamy pop brought to you by five guys who can cheer you up even in the dreariest of weather. LAUREN ROSENTHAL
