Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Polica/Lolawolf/The Very Knees

When: Thu., June 5, 9 p.m. 2014

Channy Leaneagh, front-woman of Minneapolis band Poliça, pushes against cultural stereotypes of women. She named the band’s second album, Shulamith after the feminist author of the same name. Producer Ryan Olsen accompanies Leaneagh’s philosophical lyrics and moody voice with angst-filled beats and synth-pop soundscapes. “Very Cruel” has a dark driving bass groove drawing you into a neurotic story about loving the wrong person. Lead single “Tiff” is a sharpened attack on vanity and lethargy, sung over a laid-back smoky beat. It’s good stuff that should make for a great live show. (Gonzalez)
