Knurr and Spell, Hectorina, Sunnyslope(s), The Wyrms 

When: Fri., Dec. 4, 8:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $5
Sean Parker once led Pleasant, a beguiling Chapel Hill group whose slanting melodies and oblong instrumental lines should have pushed the group to the audiences that greeted Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Oxford Collapse or even The New Pornographers. Pleasant split years ago, and Parker has finally brought his uncanny sense of twisting time and tone back to bear with the quartet Knurr and Spell. The band’s exciting debut, Ought, takes what was great about Pleasant and decorates it in fancier clothes, fostering a tension between the hard angles of Murphy’s writing and the softer approach of the veteran players around him. And bassist Betty Rupp is a righteous vocal foil for Parker, especially on the rising, redeeming “Oh My God, You Are Insane.” —Grayson Haver Currin
