Music Around Town

Futurebirds/Waylon Speed

When: Mon., Nov. 2, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Psychedelic country: Futurebirds’ music touches on a fairly bipolar network of influences. On their latest album, Hotel Parties, the band chugs through reverb-tinged chord progressions and dusty percussion. With a slacker drawl, Carter King sings his way through rambling American anthems (“Paranoia Letters,” “Xmas Drags”) and more plaintive offerings (like the title track). The album, along with the band’s first two outings, offers enough variety to back up the multitasking genre moniker. It’s heady stuff, though -- at once shimmering and rocking, and then morose.
