Weekend Warrior, December 9 - 11

Weekend Warrior, December 9 - 11

With the strength to reveal emotively vulnerable narratives, giving those pensions melodic instrumental legs to run on, Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, flourishes, sharing confidential tales that bloom with beautiful, rolling, instrumental momentum. She captures personal imagery, which realistically illustrates a full spectrum of emotion, while simultaneously unlocking universal threads. On Sunday night, Petal plants the initial seeds for fellow Run For Cover labelmates, Pinegrove, who shell out contemplative, earnest, alt-country stews, bringing one in close, and then forging fairly enthusiastically ahead on the heels of releasing Instigator, Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band welds insightful, society-reflecting songwriting with exuberant powerpop possibilities.
