Next Wednesday, Terrapin Station hosts a trio of acts better known for their singing/song-writing prowess than their crunchy grooves.
Boise indie rockers The Very Most are on the heels of not only a fine release—Congratulations Forever—but also from receiving accolades from the Boston Phoenix as the best new band in Idaho. The Very Most, who list the Beach Boys as an influence, offer up a more innocent sound of times past with the same attention to detail that their musical predecessors possessed.
Origami Ghosts are a Seattle-based group in the same indie-pop vein as The Very Most. Described by a fellow musician as "Modest Mouse with a cello," Origami Ghosts direct a lot of their focus on not only the meaning of their lyrics, but also the rhythm, shape and sound. On their new release, Short Momentum, founder and vocalist JP Scesniak's high, haunting voice stands out against a beautiful backdrop of cello, guitar and sparse drums.
Boise native Andrew Anderson is a skilled musician, songwriter and mandolin player who attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston. But though he's resided in the East, his music—and new EP Love in Reverse—is a reflection of his wide-open-spaces upbringing.
Sept. 24, 8 p.m., FREE, Terrapin Station, 1519 Main St.
