Rock & Pop

Tim Presley/Cate Le Bon

When: Sun., Feb. 5, 9 p.m. 2017

Though they come from different parts of the globe — Cate Le Bon is Welsh, Tim Presley is from California — both of these LA based artists make music that seems to come from the same influences. Presley, originally the White Fence bandleader, has roots in garage rock and psych rock. His solo work uses the same blueprint, but with broader instrumentation and arrangement. Le Bon takes cues from general pop and indie rock, but she adds interlocking guitar work and complex lyrics. The jaunty bounce and frantic guitar of “Long Bow,” a standout from Presley’s solo debut, demonstrate the wide mix of his influences. Le Bon has a more natural singing voice, and her music is generally more melodic. The two artists made a collaborative album a few years back; they will play separate sets tonight. (Johnny Cook)
