North Elementary, Organos 

When: Sat., April 9, 10 p.m. 2011

North Elementary fashions billowing indie pop. Keyboards swell and guitars crash as John Harrison's breathy tenor unwinds head-swaying melodies. With six albums and a passel of 7-inch singles, they're one of the most prolific Triangle acts, and perhaps the most underappreciated. Organos are Maria Albani's (Pleasant, Gerty, Schooner) arty indie pop side project. Her music shimmers with texture propelled by vigorous rhythms, her sultry alto and hard-cornering angularities. Though she records all the music herself, she's assembled a backing band comprising Harrison and ringers from Schooner, Ticonderoga, and Nathan Oliver. The bands play at The Cave on Saturday, April 9, too. These shows serve as release parties for a new 7-inch split. —Chris Parker
