Wooden Birds, Dan Mangan, Hospital Ships Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Tue., Aug. 24, 9 p.m. 2010

American Analog Set's Andrew Kenny is still kicking it slowcore with his new band, which features former AAS collaborators Sean Haskins (drums) and Leslie Sisson (guitar, vocals) alongside Matt Pond PA's titular front man on guitar. But the exceptional depth and intimacy of Wooden Birds bests his previous band. Their 2009 debut, Magnolia (Barsuk), is tender and mournful—On the Beach-era Neil Young on an opiate drip, with hushed boy-girl harmonies more whispered than sung. —Jessica Hopper

Price: $10
