The Cave Singers, Pollens 

When: Fri., Nov. 29, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $17
Borrowing from African trance and choral music, Pollens take six voices and stack, blend, layer, split, and roll them into sneaky arrangements. Those delicate layers are accompanied by sparse instrumentation that plucks inspiration from the Near East, while also dabbling in prog-rock, folk, and jazz. Somehow, none of it sounds piecemeal or out of place. They open for fellow Seattleites the Cave Singers, whose latest, Naomi, finds the rockers-turned-folkies moving a little further away from the front-porch stomp of previous records and into lusher, more dynamic sounds. The Cave Singers also welcomed Fleet Foxes bassist Morgan Henderson into the fold, who recorded Pollens' debut EP back in 2011. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
