Doug Fir

LA-based Radar Bros. released their eighth album, Eight, at the beginning of this year. It is Jim Putnam's most psychedelic—and most sinister—work of country-shoegaze to date. The songs hint at a deep, dark emotional underbelly, but generally, layers of noisy good-naturedness outweigh the menacing flourishes. That's what makes the album better than good: It's a fun album on the first listen, but a profound one on the 10th. Also on the bill: Ola Podrida has seen a lot of personnel changes in between David Wingo's peripatetic ramblings between Austin and Brooklyn. But because his day job is as a film composer (Take Shelter is a recent standout), it's no surprise that the band has maintained a cinematic quality. Old Podrida's third album, Ghosts Go Blind, has a big robust sound, the product of a new (Austin-based) lineup. The shift may surprise longtime Ola Podrida fans, but the tiny profound moments remain.
