Local presenters Tick Tick have put together a beautiful woozefest for this Sunday:
Touring in support of their new record Devotion (Carpark), Baltimore-based two piece Beach House (MySpace) play lovely, sparse, autumnal, lovesick songs. With echoes of Mazzy Star, Spiritualized, and Nico, they'll conjure a particular atmosphere: organ-drone, slide guitar, reverb, melody, drum machine on bossa nova. Hopefully it'll be foggy in Winooski that night - expect a lush, experiential show.
Papercuts (MySpace) is the mastermind of Jason Quever, a Californian who has collaborated with the likes of Cass McCombs and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. His album Can't Go Back (Gnomonsong) is a masterful complexity of pop hooks, rich textures, and his own distinctive croon.
Local opener and Beach House labelmate Greg Davis will start things off with a heady drone session.
$6 advanced at Battery Street Jeans, The Monkey House, Pure Pop Records or www.ticktick.org.
$8/$10 day of show
