Music Around Town

City and Colour/Greyhounds

When: Thu., Jan. 28, 8 p.m. 2016

Formerly of the post-punk band Alexisonfire, singer-songwriter Dallas Green adopts a more nuanced approach with City and Colour, a sideproject that has now become a day job. Green wrote the songs on the band’s most recent album, If I Should Go Before You, in the latter half of 2014 after returning from two years of touring. Recorded at Blackbird Studios near Nashville, the songs suggest the degree to which Green has evolved as a singer and songwriter. On songs such as “Woman,” a tune that begins with a crisp, shimmering electric guitar chord, and the Black Keys-like "Wasted Love," his vocals sound particularly soulful. Though many of the songs have a downtempo feel to them, the spirited “Mizzy C" makes fun of his tendency to be an introvert as Green sings that his disposition has “run its course.” Green and band have really jelled. Expect the live show to reflect that. (Niesel)
