Equal amounts of influence rush from each member of WL on their debut album, Hold. It's a feat that ought to be commonplace for new bands, but the distinction of symbiotic interplay found on songs like "Sugar Pill" and "You're Not Really Here" speak to sonic deliberations that champion three parts making the whole for the trio. Misty Mary's elusive vocals fit snugly over Michael Yun's inspired guitar squall, which in turn never buries the smart, steady drumming of Stevie Sparks. As much indebted to the repetitious, guitar-forward dynamics of Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo as they are to whatever shoegaze means anymore, WL have locked into a compelling alcove of Portland rock that's fun to watch unfold. They're joined at tonight's all-ages show by a band of School of Rock's finest players. RYAN J. PRADO
