Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Saintseneca/Two Hand Fools/The Melodic/Dolfish

When: Wed., March 5, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Saintseneca brings much-needed distinction to the watered-down folk/Americana scene, particularly in their eerie background washes and terrific harmonies. When we last met Saintseneca in 2012, the band was still working its most recent album, Last, on the road. And that album remains the hallmark of a tidily quaint catalog. With aplomb, the musicians wind their way through a dynamic collection of tunes. The opening triumvirate, “Acid Rain,” “Blood Drawing,” and “Beasts” presents a nice cross-section of everything good in indie folk music these days. “Beasts,” in particular, showcases how a songwriter can balance strength on the back of solitude and quiet. Looking ahead, though, Saintseneca drops their next album, Dark Arc, on April 1. Several songs have been released publicly so far. The merrily brooding “Happy Alone” portends great things for the rest of the album. Listen for new tunes during tonight’s gig. (Sandy)
