Class M Planets 

When: Sat., July 26, 6 p.m. 2014
Price: free
Deerpath, the new vinyl album from Class M Planets, comes in a formidable package: a full-color gatefold with sumptuous storybook artwork by Cary Porter, evoking the work of British artist Peter Cross (who illustrated Trouble for Trumpets and did the wonderful cover art for all those Anthony Phillips solo albums). The actual music contained within is substantially more modest. Class M Planets—the "tweak folk" project of songwriter Adam Goldman, who's also launching his (hopefully ironically named) Totallypunk label with the release—sounds like murmuring, introspective, acoustic sketches whose charms are located in their low-key, homespun qualities. It's a welcome counterpart to Goldman's other band, Thebrotheregg, whose prog/psych/pop hybrid has long been a Portland mainstay. NED LANNAMANN
