Phil Cook & His Feat, Sumner James 

When: Thu., Nov. 15, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Two intriguing Triangle side projects await at this week's Local Band, Local Beer double feature. With the aid of his Feat (that is, his feet on percussion), Phil Cook zeroes in on the ever-present old-time and blues influence of Megafaun. His lithe and luxurious instrumentals on banjo and guitar recombine forgotten American roots into music that feels at once unique and familiar. Sumner James, the solo outlet of Bombadil's James Phillips, abandons the dramatic whimsy of his band's charming folk, opting for found-sound electronica that suggests a more minimalist update on The Books. —Jordan Lawrence
