When: Wed., April 6, 9 p.m. 2011

Before the release of their debut long-player last fall, San Francisco duo Tamaryn seemed like they might just wash away with the tide, right along with all the other dreamy, blissed-out bands that cropped up in 2010. Instead, The Waves (Mexican Summer) anchors them as a force within the echoey-girl-voice trend, or "newgaze" (or whatever stupid name you wanna coin); the band's stuttering snare and infinite expanses of fuzzed-up, fucked-out guitar will feel like home to anyone with an attachment to My Bloody Valentine, Lush, or the early 4AD catalog. The group's singer and namesake, Tamaryn, sighs about water, darkness, and feelings, and though her voice is light, she cuts a commanding path and holds her own against the raging layers of shimmery din. —Jessica Hopper
