Futurebirds, Death Songs, Marisa Anderson 

When: Sat., Jan. 25, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $12
Athens-based Futurebirds are not reinventing the wheel. No one has to, really—the wheel works quite well in its current form. That said, the band's latest release, Baba Yaga, is a thoroughly enjoyable country rock album that performs all of the genre's necessary functions. Put it on, and it fills a vacant afternoon with a gust of four-part harmonies, dopamine-boosting guitar tones, and a rambling pedal steel that will entertain your most fruitful daydreams. Yes, tracks like "Virginia Slims" and "Tan Lines" arrive in your house truly sopping with reverb—have towels ready—but anyone who has so much as uttered a note in the shower knows that everything sounds better this way. Combine a sturdy knowledge of this excellent record with attendance at the band's notoriously kinetic live show and you're in startlingly good shape. RAQUEL NASSER
