Though he's still best known as the drummer and occasional songwriter for just-reunited Chapel Hill pop luminaries Ben Folds Five, Darren Jessee and his trusty sidemen have been plodding away under his Hotel Lights moniker for the better part of the past decade. As captain of his own ship, Jessee crafts well-orchestrated tunes that trade BFF's offbeat lyrics, fuzzed-out bass and bashed piano chords for contemplative narratives, lush arrangements and hints of Southern heritage. Electric Owls have similarly proud lineage: Andrew Herod co-led acclaimed Chapel Hill alt-rockers the Comas, but the current Ashevillian and his ace team of hired guns turn the amps down and harmonies up on gentler indie pop numbers. —Spencer Griffith
