Weekend Warrior, July 7 - 9

Weekend Warrior, July 7 - 9

This Saturday, Union Transfer hosts a billing that generates power via proximity. (Sandy) Alex G floats feathered layers of intersecting instrumentation, establishing a complex reassuring sense of melody. Placing pensively introspective narratives on top of delicately detailed compositions, his tunes are capable of swaying you into submission and/or abruptly shifting sonic gears and ripping it up. And as we await the official release of her new album Soft Sounds From Another Planet (due out July 14 via Dead Oceans), Japanese Breakfast captivates with cosmos-venturing, silky serenades and dramatically danceable tracks that waft into the ether, while sinking in deep. In support of their recent full-length debut #1 Hit Single, available via Double Double Whammy, Brooklyn quartet Cende cracks the doors open with a jangly, jarring brand of power pop. - Michael Colavita
