Good Stuff House, Silver Pines, Silent Land Time Machine Free Recommended Soundboard

When: Tue., June 23, 9 p.m. 2009

The languid, droning country psychedelia on Forces, the second self-released CD-R by Texas quintet Silver Pines, seems to be reaching your ears from a long ways off. When clouds of eerie organ and bowed saw curl around Stefanie Franciotti’s syrupy vocals, it sounds as though she’s broadcasting from a pirate station that’s not just across the Mexican border but 50 years in the past. The guitarists seem to recede further into the distance when they start ladling on the distortion—it’s like half hearing a UFO dogfight from three desert counties away. And if the whizzing electronics on a new tune the band recently posted to YouTube are anything to go by, the music can get even spacier than that. Good Stuff House headlines; the Silver Pines and Silent Land Time Machine open. —Bill Meyer
