Black Prairie and Tiburones


Aladdin Theater (map) Southeast
Fri., May 2, 8 p.m. 2014 21+


When Black Prairie began in 2007, they were the all-instrumental counterpart to the Decemberists, but the band's steady evolution and emerging autonomy is exciting to see unfold. While the band's debut, Feast of the Hunter's Moon, was largely a bluegrass affair, Black Prairie's lushly orchestrated Americana-pop on their fantastic new LP, Fortune, makes for an immediately likeable listen, with vocalist Annalisa Tornfelt's crisp voice slicing through hay-bale ditties like the feel-good "Kiss of Fate." The band's malleability is delivered through diverse instrumentation (dobro, accordion, mandolin, and more), and the band has the ability to shapeshift into driving rock 'n' roll hybrids relatively comfortably, as heard on the big boom of "Let It Out." Simply put, this could be Black Prairie's big breakout. RYAN J. PRADO
