Quasi and Blues Control

Sat., Nov. 23, 9 p.m. 2013 21+


Quasi's latest, Mole City, follows up 2010's wall-of-noisefest American Gong. And while Sam Coomes' guitar is still as wonderfully unruly as ever, this time around Coomes and drummer Janet Weiss have devised a more textured and moody double LP that plays to their love of the Beatles and Sonic Youth (and everything in between). For every noise bomb like "You Can Stay But You Gotta Go," there's a sneaky psych nugget like "Geraldine" or a glammy power popper like "Double Deuce." The fact that Mole City comes off as one long collection of all of Weiss and Coomes' whims is what makes it both fantastic and overly fantastical. It's made to be listened to in one sitting, preferably with headphones. In 2013, that might be the most avant thing about Mole City. MARK LORE
