Quilt, Plastic Crimewave Syndicate, Ne-Hi Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Soundboard Image

When: Thu., Feb. 6, 9 p.m. 2014

On its second album, Held in Splendor (Mexican Summer), this lazy-sounding Boston psych-pop trio hangs on to its shaggy charm while sharpening its sound. Quilt’s songs are modest in scope and scale—atmospheric, flanged-out guitar drips over simple bass and drum parts—but their exquisite vocal harmonies are something else, recalling the woozy sunshine pop of the Mamas & the Papas and the Association. Jarvis Taveniere of Woods produced the new album, and he helps balance rambling psychedelia with sugary melodies, just as he’s done for his own band. —Peter Margasak Plastic Crimewave Syndicate and Ne-Hi open.
