Cate Le Bon, Knives of Spain 

When: Tue., Sept. 25, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-10

If you make a snap judgment on the output of Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon after a song or two, you're prone to miss the bulk of her payload. Le Bon bounds between styles, using her alternately doe-eyed and steely-eyed voice to light tunes that move from acid pop or garage stomp to sweet electro glitter and focused acoustic forthrightness. To wit, she recently followed up this year's big-eared and restless Cyrk with the more meditative and blunt Cyrk II. Given her tendency for variety and her limited two-album output, it's a preternaturally mature move that puts the emphasis on the quality of the LP, not the quantity of its offerings. If you like the thought of Stereolab gone alternately wild and reserved, Le Bon's a fulfilling new addition. With Knives of Spain. —Grayson Currin
