Wednesday, August 15th 2012: Sky Captains of Industry

TONIGHT’S SHOW ($8):

  • The Sky Captains of Industry say they’re here to bring you “folktronic rock and roll from the future.”  We think they’re here to bring you a hybrid of Weezer, Pavement and the easy breezey southern jam band tendencies of My Morning Jacket.

  • Gabriel Berezin of Monuments describes his music as “solo space rock – electric guitars, drones, loops, and a voice.”  This is accurate.  All by himself, he weaves together a tapestry of soundscapes then sails his Buckley-esque vocals across them into murkey unexplored regions of his own making.  Listen here.

  • Dan Abraham (the solo adventures of Courtesy Tier‘s Omer Leibovitz) isn’t simply a stripped down version of its louder project.  Stripped down, yes.  But these songs venture into new territories, wherein Leibovitz’s voice at times calls to mind The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser or The National’s Matt Berninger and the instrumentation is unsettling at best.  Listen here.
