Music Around Town

Cloakroom/Wildhoney/Seeress/Peacekeeper (in the Locker Room)

When: Sat., Jan. 2, 8 p.m. 2016

How about some stoner rock from northwest Indiana? Culled from the depths of the Rust Belt, Cloakroom’s vibe isn’t full-on “stoner rock,” but it gets the job done. The band veers in and among glimpses of shoegaze and shades of emo and grunge. They’ve released an EP and a full album over the past two years. Both are delights for those who relish the type of stuff that, say, Hum was doing in the late 1990s. Take “Deep Sea Station,” for instance, off the 2015 album: This song transforms the sounds of crushing waves into distorted, flanged-out guitars and infectious percussion work. Doyle Martin’s vocals crest across soaring chords and and effects, producing the dreamlike state that Cloakroom has crafted with deft ease over these past nascent years. (Sandy)
