Small Black, Heavenly Beat 

When: Mon., June 24, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

On their third album, Limits of Desire, Brooklyn's Small Black offer a 10-track smear of synth-driven '80s-baby R&B that suggests the like-minded washes of M83 and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark in its broad-stroke melody. Naturally, the wide angles on Small Black's music risk fading into background like cinematic stucco, but the sweeping gestures of the band's easygoing pulse and generalist songwriting are more than enough to fill a room. Openers Heavenly Beat are similarly informed by chillwave's swirling reverb and distant vocals, but they enliven the pairing with a generous backbeat. —Bryan C Reed
