Torche, Bats & Mice, Midnight Plus One 

When: Thu., Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

In April, Torche released Harmonicraft, a fine album of the band's heavyweight but buoyant pop-metal. But Harmonicraft seemed frustratingly easy to Torche, a melodically sharp band that's most interesting when they make those hooks work in spite of the mess around them. In December, they returned with "Harmonslaught," the perfect A-side to a single that made you remember not only the song but also the beating it supplied. Few bands have been so vexing and rewarding to me in recent years, so they're always worth the chance, even with caveats. Bats and Mice opens with Midnight Plus One. —Grayson Currin
