Bird Call, Sugar Glyder, Jessica Long & the New Kind 

When: Sun., Sept. 9, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $7-9

Competently delicate and agreeably pretty, Bird Call unites the vocal idiosyncrasy of Joanna Newsom or Emiliana Torrini with unfettered chamber-folk arrangements, suggesting complexity without actually engaging in avant-garde techniques. It's a palatable, well-crafted experience for listeners who like to feel high-minded without actually putting in the effort. Conversely, the two openers never hint at anything beyond populist pop expressions. Charlotte's Sugar Glyder moves with the outsized simplicity of bands such as Passion Pit, pairing pleasing indie rock textures with knee-jerk arena hooks. Durham's Jessica Long & the New Kind appropriate slacker rock tones to grace Taylor Swift-style pop-rock with a distorted edge. —Jordan Lawrence
