Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Twiddle/the Mucklebuck/Gypsydaze

When: Thu., Nov. 21, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Combining the jam band sensibility with a focus on groovy, almost lounge-like song structures, Vermont’s Twiddle sets itself apart from the pack of contemporaries. Frontman Mihali Savoulidis channels the ghost of Blind Lemon's Shannon Hoon (listen to “The Box,” in particular), accenting the dynamic music of the band with remarkable emotion and care. Check out 2011’s Somewhere on the Mountain, which covers a hell of a lot of ground. Cuts like “Doinkinbonk!!!” and “Second Wind” showcase the band members working their way through intricate arrangements and uplifting melodies. The latter bears terrific work from keys man Ryan Dempsey. And, hey, album opener “Daydream Farmer” boasts one of the coolest track titles we’ve seen in a long, long time. (Sandy)
