Helado Negro, June McDoom [garage]

After Roberto Carlos Lange celebrates PHASOR with a Feb. 9 tour kickoff in Atlanta, Austin earns the fourth live airing of the new album’s electronic- and folk-woven songwriting as Helado Negro. Preview the comforting, mechanized warmth with singles like “Best for You and Me,” inspired by the Asheville, North Carolina resident’s visit to the infinity-touching SAL MAR synthesizer machine. Playing with contrast, his prior LP Far In emerged during lockdown in Marfa. Equally must-see for reworking the folk framework, NYC artist June McDoom followed up the haunting whirl of her self-titled 2022 EP on this year’s With Strings, rearranging two originals alongside Judee Sill and Nina Simone selects. – Rachel Rascoe
