The two-headed monster is back: Portland mainstays Quasi have reverted to their original lineup of Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss. (Bass player Joanna Bolme is off with Stephen Malkmus' Merry Band of Jicks.) Although Coomes and Weiss have both been busy with numerous other projects—such as the little band that Weiss plays in called Wild Flag—they've got some new material at the ready, which bodes well for a follow-up to 2010's American Gong. Quasi never fail to deliver in the live setting, offering an at-times brutal attack that dances back and forth between soothing, earwormy melodies and art-punk dissonance. They're a band that just keeps getting better, and the chance to suck in some new Quasi sounds should not be missed. NED LANNAMANN
