Albatross started as a songwriting project for Ryan Sollee, the frontman for the Builders and the Butchers, who was charged with crafting songs for a play about a dinosaur that evolves into an albatross. The project eventually became its own band, and at first blush Albatross doesn't sound all that dissimilar from the Builders—dark acoustic ballads anchored by Sollee's slightly nasal delivery—but strings lend an extra bit of theatrical flair. Albatross has an album release show coming up later this month on February 20 (at Clyde's Prime Rib!), so this show may serve as something of a warm-up. They're playing with Levon's Helmet, the new power-pop band that features former members of Water Tower, and whose five-song EP deserves your attention. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
