Phantascist, Lady Lazarus 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Mantic is the debut by Savannah songwriter/ tone invoker Melissa Ann Sweat, who records as Lady Lazarus, itself the title of the Sylvia Plath poem that famously ends "I rise with my red hair/ and I eat men like air." Sweat has an interestingly unsteady hand at the piano, with her wobbling rhythms, chord splashes and sheets of drone forming sound clouds spiked by lightning. Suggesting at once Charlemagne Palestine and Smog, Cat Power and Debussy, Sweat makes music that's immersive and restrained without seeming pretentious or overly mannered. Carrboro's Phantascist headlines. —Grayson Currin
