Organos, Josh Carpenter, Soft Company 

When: Fri., Jan. 7, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $6

Pick your pop pleasure: During a year that was particularly strong for EPs, Organos—the solo project of Schooner bassist Maria Albani—made one of the best. Built from artfully, intricately stacked fragments of playful melodies, Albani's songs on The Limbs hang hooks just long enough so that they dig deep. You'll recognize Soft Company mastermind Missy Thangs from her other current band, The Love Language, or perhaps from her stint in Le Weekend. Her songs here are languid enough to suggest the former but precise and punchy enough to suggest the latter. Josh Carpenter plays in Black Mountain pan-soul group Floating Action, and he's just finished an album that paints him as the hill-born cousin of the Triangle collective Drughorse. Like a melted stack of classic wax, Carpenter's music blends soul and rock with a swagger that's pure and a vibe that's perfect. —Grayson Currin
