Schooner, Gift Horse, Lake Inferior, Twin Tigers 

When: Fri., April 30, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Athens' Gift Horse is led by Hunter Morris, and like cousin Hardy Morris' band Dead Confederate, they fashion a throbbing psych roar that reverberates with the consistency of the tides. The distortion-drenched guitar suggests a more laidback Dinosaur Jr., filling the room with thick washes of sound, swaddling bobbing hooks baited with Hunter's sleepy tenor croon. Fellow Athenians Twin Tigers' psych approach sounds influenced by the cinematic washes of Meddle-era Pink Floyd, spiked with intervals of garage furor. Locals Schooner offer textured indie pop with occasional bite. Guitars churn, drone and crash intermittently, relenting to make room for lilting hooks to breathe, blending alluring drift with flashes of muscularity. —Chris Parker
