If you missed Balmorhea’s sold-out performance at the Paramount in December 2021, here’s a rare second chance. The band – now split between Austin and L.A. – returns in support of this year’s splendid Pendant World (Deutsche Grammophon). While lineups and themes have evolved considerably since Balmorhea first emerged locally in 2007, the core has always revolved around the intimacy of multi-instrumentalists Rob Lowe and Michael A. Muller, who weave beautiful instrumental suites that can soundtrack just about any occasion. The duo’s eighth studio LP may be more somber and sophisticated, but Balmorhea remains as compelling as ever. Toronto saxophonist Joseph Shabason opens.
