Whatever Brains, Daniel Bachman 

When: Fri., July 19, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: Free

Raleigh band Whatever Brains infamously avoids professionalism. They don't do band bios or press shots, grueling tours or marketing campaigns; rather, they put their heads down and make artistically restless and brazen records, which have pushed them in a half-decade from sneering punks to, on their latest, lysergic art-rock savants. Yet last week, at their LP release show in Raleigh, Whatever Brains played with the sort of narrative focus and precision that felt like a pro move. They stretched codas and segued between songs, avoided banter and generally did not relent. On this strange but welcome bill, the Brains pair with Virginia's Daniel Bachman, a 23-year-old acoustic guitarist who is currently making some of the most emotionally lucid and physically absorbing sounds in his field. —Grayson Currin
