Music Around Town

The Oh Hellos/Liza Anne

When: Sun., Jan. 31, 8 p.m. 2016

On first blush, it’s hard not to roll your eyes at the idea of an album “inspired in part by C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters and Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind, mythology and folklore, and apocalyptic literature.” “In part”. But, hey, The Oh Hellos, a sibling duo based out of a house in southern Texas, assembled a pretty goddam touching work of art in Dear Wormwood, their second album. This is delicate folk songwriting, anchored wonderfully by Maggie and Tyler Heath’s emotional vocal work. We’ll point to album closer “Thus Always to Tyrants” as a great example of the duo’s instrumentation — hearty chord progressions, swift percussion, an entire atmospheric system caught up in song.
