Tonight! Holiday Shores and Weird Wives at Snooze Theatre
For those who aren't ready to let the weekend end just yet, the Snooze Theatre in Lake Park promises an evening of woozy bliss tonight. At the top of the evening's agenda is Holiday Shores, a Tallahassee outfit quite comfortable brightening the corners of its pop-oriented songs with off-kilter keyboard lines, bells, and Nathan Pemberton's tenor affectations.
Material from the group's second full-length, New Masses for Squaw Peak, due out September 13 via TwoSyllable, is some trippy business and should figure heavily into the night's entertainment. While Holiday Shores has occasionally flirted with a straight-ahead song -- take "Edge of Our Lives" from 2009's Columbus'd the Whim or a cover of Arthur Russell's "Your Motion Says" -- but these days we're dealing with a psychedelic template that should mesh well with the two openers, punk-deconstruct act Weird Wives and German rock experimenters Universal Expansion.
Listen to "Airglow" or "Threepeat Got Old" (below) to get an idea of the disorienting but inviting sonics on display. Imagine a lounge act that got fed acid right before hitting the stage.
On the other side of the spectrum, fall under "Spells," a mesmerizing bit of disco funk that hits the high-hat at all of the proper intervals. Mastery!
