Dead Confederate, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band 

When: Thu., Sept. 30, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $10-12

Dead Confederate's 2008 debut, Wrecking Ball, purveyed sweltering, slo-mo neo-psych reminiscent of the Black Angels, spiced with loose-limbed Southern rock like that of My Morning Jacket. Their follow-up, Sugar, tightens the arrangements and reins in the sonic excess. Even better, they pick up the tempos and crank up the aggression on "Mob Scene" and "Quiet Scene." They may not fully avoid the sophomore slump, but it bodes well for their next release. Mt. St. Helens affects a similar brooding amble, though the melodrama is bigger to match the epic canvases and more varied instrumentation. The vigorous textures can be rather exhausting, but the songs never lack for ambition.—Chris Parker
