0912fallguide_musicpicks_mountainman_pc_shervin_lainez.jpg

Flutronix Flutes rarely get much time in the spotlight, but the flute-focused duo of Allison Loggins-Hull and Nathalie Joachim offers a refreshing break from that trend with their mesmerizing, airy compositions. Sep. 21, 8 p.m., UNC's Memorial Hall, Chapel Hill, www.carolinaperformingarts.org

Joshua Hedley If you're craving the kind of crystal-clear country music that shines like the rhinestones on a Nudie suit, Nashville's Joshua Hedley will satisfy you with his hard-swinging twang. Sep. 28, 8 p.m., Cat's Cradle Back Room, Carrboro, www.catscradle.com

Serpentwithfeet On his debut LP, June's soil, serpentwithfeet's Josiah Wise explores sex, intimacy, and obsession in compositions that are dense and intense—as strange and wonderful as a snake that doesn't slither. Oct. 11, 9 p.m., Kings, Raleigh, www.kingsraleigh.com

Oddisee Equally skilled as a rapper and a beatmaker, Washington, D.C.'s Oddisee is a fast-moving machine; his flexibility with turns of phrase and intriguing rhythms is outright acrobatic. Oct. 18, 8 p.m., Motorco, Durham, www.dukeperformances.duke.edu

Big Thief Big Thief's capacity for serving up songs that pack a punch with empathy, introspection, and unforgettable melodies is unmatched by any of the band's indie-rock peers. Oct. 24, 8 p.m., Cat's Cradle, Carrboro, www.catscradle.com

Iron & Wine Sixteen years since issuing his first album as Iron & Wine, Sam Beam continues to offer tunes that are gorgeous, gentle, and poignantly poetic. They'll blossom in the stately Memorial Auditorium. Nov. 10, 8 p.m., Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh, www.dukeenergycenterraleigh.com

Kamasi Washington One of the brightest stars of contemporary, future-forward jazz, Kamasi Washington is an inimitable sax player whose recordings feel like dispatches from a particularly thrilling corner of outer space. Nov. 15, 8 p.m., The Ritz, Raleigh, www.ritzraleigh.com

Mountain Man This incandescent trio—Molly Sarlé, Amelia Meath, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig—has returned after a few years' hiatus to deliver more songs that are breathtaking with their near-supernatural harmonies and delicate charms.

Nov. 17, 8 p.m., Haw River Ballroom, Saxapahaw, www.hawriverballroom.com

The Mountain Goats Hail Satan, for the nation's favorite purveyors of songs about emotional turmoil, goths, and wrestlers take a two-night stand in one of the region's prettiest venues. Nov. 30 & Dec. 1, 8 p.m., Haw River Ballroom, Saxapahaw, www.hawriverballroom.com

In the Jazz Tradition Before the fall semester comes to an end, Duke Performances presents a string of concerts celebrating women's contributions to jazz, featuring performances from Nnenna Freelon, Lucinda Williams, Kate McGarry, and more. Dec. 3-10, Various times, The Fruit, Durham, www.dukeperformances.duke.edu
