Gayngs, Glasser 

When: Wed., Oct. 6, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $17-20

Nominally, at least, Gayngs are an indie rock supergroup, with soul-folk crooner Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, rapper P.O.S., Andrew Bird sideman Mike Lewis and members of Megafaun and The Rosebuds collaborating under the aegis of mastermind Ryan Olson. But on last year's adventurous debut Relayted, the collective routes perfect bits of melody through a matrix of less obvious influences, from keynote inspirations 10cc to Bill Laswell's dub work, Miles Davis' psychedelic phases and chart-topping pop. The result is one of the year's most immersive records. Paced at 69 beats per minutes, with lyrics that shift constantly from the romantically doomed to the surreally detailed, what began as a joke of sorts becomes a perfect atmosphere of darkness. Perfectly sequenced, with thoughtful transitions navigating from one track to the next, Relayted demands you adjust your preconceptions—and, tonight, your schedule. With Glasser.—Grayson Currin
