Island (Self-released)

The latest release from the experimental duo the Baker's Basement begins with "Step Away from It," an instrumental song that commences with a dull drone that slowly escalates into a shimmering guitar riff. The song isn't indicative of the album as a whole. The rest of the music here from the multi-instrumentalist duo — Kate Dedinsky and Adam Grindler — doesn't sound much like the post-rock opening number. Dedinsky or Grindler are at their best when they share lead vocal duties on songs such as "Strangers" and "Tired Writers," songs that suggest the two have great chemistry.

The Baker's Basement with Johnny Habu and the Rebel Salmon, 9 p.m., Saturday, March 29, Mahall's.
