Tonight's show marks the vinyl release of local punk-rock four-piece Arctic Flower's excellent full-length, Weaver. While the album has been on the group's Bandcamp for a few months, tonight's the first chance to get a hold of a physical copy. Released by Canadian label Deranged Records, the music takes on a gothic post-punk sound, but refuses to get dragged down by any brooding as it keeps an up-tempo pace for much of the album. Stan Wright's guitar work and singer Alex Carroccio's vocals pull the space between your ears from one extreme to another while battling for supremacy at the forefront of the mix. Along with plenty of melody, the album also includes Carroccio's cutthroat delivery on "Anamnesis," bringing forth the band's aggressive side and serving notice that Arctic Flowers are unwilling to be cornered by any influence or style for long.
