Frontier Ruckus, Samantha Crain 

When: Mon., June 28, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

Though headliner Samantha Crain's second album, You (Understood), adds a bit of angularity and electricity to her previously pleasant distaff folk, she's got a lot of instruments and looks to add before matching Ramseur Records labelmates, Frontier Ruckus. The Michigan quintet's occasionally topical, often romantic new LP, Deadmalls & Nightfalls, is stylistically kin to the kitchen-sink Americana of O'Death. Songs like the gentle, horn-abetted "The Tower" and the Laurel Canyon rocker "Ringbearer" add a grace and restraint that bands so young and inclusive generally lack. —Grayson Currin
