Desert Liminal, Jennifer Hedstrom, Loveblaster at Communication
August 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Madison duo Loveblaster’s debut single, “The Need To Fail,” has an arresting tension at work underneath its minimal, gentle surface. I’m not sure why a band with that sort of name is channeling the sounds of Low (circa Things We Lost In The Fire or thereabouts?) rather than burly cock-rock, but we are all the better off for it. Abigail Self (vocals, bass, piano) and Marley VanRaalte (vocals, guitar, drums) create vocal harmonies that linger between warmth and desolation, atop ringing chords and plodding drums. Neal Jochmann of Combat Naps and Able Baker will join them on sax at this show. Loveblaster plans to release a second single, “Watching You Change,” next month. They share the bill here with Chicago dream-pop voyagers Desert Liminal and Madison singer-songwriter Jennifer Hedstrom. —Scott Gordon
