If Sufjan Stevens had jumped a plane from Michigan to Warsaw a decade ago, only to later realize he'd left his beloved banjo behind in the taxi, he might have composed something similar to Coldair's 2013 album, Whose Blood. The solo project of Polish multi-instrumentalist Tobiasz Bilinski, Coldair crafts delicately balanced folk-pop, arranging falsetto vocals, guitars, keys, trumpet, and percussion to piece together songs that are elegant and grandiose. Bilinski masterfully conjures up a strong and instant sense of nostalgia, and then mainlines it directly through your headphone cord. Just listen to a track like "Wraith" and try not to become immediately haunted by the narrow streets and looming factories of Poland's capital city. The rare opportunity to catch Coldair stateside, alongside the last AU show before the local experimental pop group lay low to work on new material, make this a free Sunday session that's not to be missed.
