Chicago label Kranky has been fostering excellent highbrow, exploratory music for 18 years. This package bill of its artists—note the early 6 pm showtime—features Portland's minimalist art-pop auteur Benoît Pioulard; stately, Stars of the Lid-affiliated, orchestral-drone maestros A Winged Victory for the Sullen (with the ACME String Ensemble); and Ken Camden. The latter's home-recorded 2010 gem Lethargy & Repercussion offers a half-dozen third-eye-stunning pieces of guitar mesmerism. Think the sparse astral drifts of Spacemen 3's Dreamweapon crossed with the desert-mirage drones of Psychic Ills and Don Cherry's "Malkauns." This is a new breed of sacred music drained of all sanctimony, and it's hella rich. DAVE SEGAL
