    Lake Street Dive, The Rad Trads

    Assembled at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music, Brooklyn-based retro-soul act Lake Street Dive employs splashy jazz, Motown melodies, and Sixties radio pop. Sixth LP Free Yourself Up produced brazen ballads and sassy groove accented by Rachael Price’s husky vox and new keyboardist Akie Bermiss. Quirky NYC quintet the Rad Trads opens with grandiose horns and Americana leanings.

    Hikes, the Kraken Quartet, Honey & Salt, Dude Elsberry, Salsa

    When revelations of sexual assault ousted Hikes’ founding guitarist Will Kauber from the locals late last year, Austin’s popular emotional math-folk group stopped in its tracks. The group now returns behind Mother Falcon vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Claire Puckett. The technically minded, harmonically inclined foursome reappears amongst friends: Salsa, Dude Elsberry, Honey & Salt, and the Kraken Quartet.

    Tim Rutili & Craig Ross, Knife in the Water, Moist Flesh

    Onetime Stick People and Storyville member Craig Ross and Tim Rutili of Chicago’s Dead Ocean-signed experimenters Califone diverge from the drone of 2016’s Guitars Tuned to Air Conditioners on their second collaborative LP. 10 Seconds to Collapse finds the tandem striking sublimely catchy songwriter pop spiked with spacey vocals, tweaked guitars, and sonically smashed beats.

    Neurosis, Converge, Birds in Row

    Oakland’s Neurosis maintains a three-decade catalog of progressive doomcore that’s the envy of metalania. 2016’s Fires Within Fires ceded no ground and forms the core of this rare Austin show. Salem’s metallic hardcore icons Converge broke a long silence with last year’s powerhouse The Dusk in Us, while French trio Birds in Row explores similar sounds on We Already Lost the World.

    Colombia Independence Party w/ Tribu Baharu, Kiko Villamizar

    Tribu Baharú infuses Afro-Caribbean rhythms into their Afro-champeta, a confluence of reggae, rumba, and calypso from Colombia’s Atlantic coast. The Bogotá sextet invigorates this fisherman music with joyful and explosive instrumentation via Pa’l Más Exigente Bailador. Combining occasional psychedelia while preserving Latin folklorico traditions of heavy percussion and call-and-response exchanges, local Colombian transplant Kiko Villamizar maintains transcendental pipes.

    Ume, Otis the Destroyer, Glaze [outside]

    “Nothing is forever,” declares Lauren Larson in a dusky rasp on new single “Two Years Sleep,” which sets up Ume’s return to melodic rock’s front lines with third LP Other Nature. On hiatus while Lauren and bassist/husband Erik focused on parenthood, the local trio’s heavy shoegaze and the frontwoman’s shattering guitar remain defiant and definitive. Likeminded local indie outfits Otis the Destroyer and Glaze open.
