Rock & Pop

Jahman Braham/Treespeak

When: Mon., Sept. 12, 8 p.m. 2016

Known regionally for upbeat shows and great jamming, this Columbus-based outfit has been catching a nice buzz over the past few years of shows. The band’s 2010 debut, NewFields, is a cohesive collection of summery funk. Songs like “A Screw Loose (Or So…)” contrast melodically tight verses with wider moments of “shred ’n’ flow,” as the band members have described it. Album opener “Life (Give and Take)” really sets the table nicely, falling back on a simple chord progression accented with delightful keys work and singer Justin Brown’s enthusiastic lyrics. (Tune your ears into the playful tempo games in that one.) The band has dropped a number of live sets online, so check them out and then check in with them later tonight. (Sandy)
