Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Tristen/The Very Knees/ShiSho

When: Thu., Oct. 23, 8:30 p.m. 2014

On Caves, Tristen embraces her poppier, electronic side. Tracks like “No One’s Gonna Know” and “Catalyst” feel straight out of the ’80s with synth backgrounds, dancy beats and her trademark melodic vocals. “Gold Star” takes on a dreamy, floaty feel as Tristen’s crooning soars over earthy yet mechanized soundcsapes driven by a midtempo beat. She shows her affinity for Madonna (hence her own one-name-moniker) in “House of War,” with a catchy refrain and disco undertones, sounding as if it could easily be a radio hit from a few decades ago. The whole album is a pretty good mix of this nostalgic electronica, yet it remains incredibly modern sounding. (Liz Trenholme)
