Florist, Marc Merza Group

The decade-long project of Florist continues to evolve as an evocative force for reflection, kicking off with 2015’s Holdly. The EP helped define the influential tide of turbulent indie pop on New York outlet Double Double Whammy, a quieter K Records for the millennial crowd. Even Beyoncé picked up on the long tail of principal Emily Sprague, placing her trademark, subtly epic synth from 2016’s “Thank You” in the Homecoming movie. A self-titled fourth record emerged in July, bringing the quartet back together (including Told Slant’s Felix Walworth) in their originating upstate New York, following Sprague’s solo-made prior LP Emily Alone. LA composer Marc Merza’s group opens, oscillating between improvisation and in-depth arrangement. – Rachel Rascoe
