When: Tue., April 15, 9 p.m. 2014

When he recorded under the name Manishevitz, Adam Busch donned a new stylistic guise with each album: bedroom folk, ornate pop, swaggering glam. Now at the helm of Sonoi, which also includes bassist Ryan Hembrey and drummer Pierce Doerr, he's forged a coherent sound from all those elements and a few new ones. The artful sequencing of spacey country-rock, glassy guitar instrumentals, pensive acoustic ballads, and thumping anthems on their new LP, Tropics of Holland (Meno Mosso), makes me think of a perfect shish kebab fresh off the grill: each taste enhances the last, and when you get to the end you're ready to start over. —Bill Meyer, 2012
