The Foreign Exchange, DJ Castro 

When: Thu., Oct. 24, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-25
Whether through the civilian lyrics of his former nice-guy rap trio Little Brother or through the emotional trauma and triumph he's limned in his grown-folks soul outfit The Foreign Exchange, Phonte Coleman's career has thrived upon wide-eyed candor. He's been an underground music star of sorts for more than a decade, but he's also a relatable fellow, a guy who could empathize with your own worries over a beer or in his hook that pushes through your speakers. The Foreign Exchange's fourth album, Love in Flying Colors, reconfirms the group's embrace of audacity and honesty: Look for the former in producer Nicolay's mix of techno chic, funk lasciviousness and string-and-keys elegance. Look for the latter, as always, in Coleman's rapped-or-sung confessions of the mercurial heart, as he progresses from the regret of discarded amorous interests toward the album's final line: "You are a dream that's realized/When I feel love." —Grayson Currin
