I don't think that the eternally flexible recipe of guitars + drums + bass + keys + vocals will ever get old to me, and All Tiny Creatures concocted 11 new splendid variations on the format with last year's Harbors, an inventively appealing album that sounds like little else out there. The group is masterful at weaving together ear-pleasing harmonic tonalities with relentless rhythmic momentum, and the results sometimes sound like pop songs, sometimes like krautrocky workouts, sometimes like neither. Hailing from Wisconsin—and with members who operate in Collections of Colonies of Bees, Volcano Choir, and Emotional Joystick—the band has close ties to Bon Iver (Justin Vernon guested on Harbors), but their approach to composition is perhaps a bit more heady and physical than Vernon's lush emoting. It's no less involving and encompassing, though. All Tiny Creatures is on Portland-based label Hometapes, and this is their first Portland show; it should be one to remember. NED LANNAMANN
