No Witch (Jagjaguwar)

Huddling together former members of the erstwhile Pretty Girls Make Graves, Seattle's Cave Singers have fashioned a deeply masculine disc in No Witch, the trio's third LP and first for Jagjaguwar. "Gifts and the Raft" and its successor "Swim Club" push off from terra firma with acoustic guitars and stripped-down harmonies, with singer Pete Quirk and comrades then veering into murky blues-rock with "Black Leaf" and "Falls." Camping with the Cave Singers calls for no small amount of bromance before heading to the Orient with "Outer Realms." Clang-banging closer "No Prosecution If We Bail" slams the gas on the party bus and thus into whiplash, but such is No Witch. (Wed., 11:35pm, Red 7 Patio)
