This is a past event.


When: Sun., Sept. 16, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
SoftSpot, from the musical melting pot that is Brooklyn, is a rare band. Moments of this loop-built, multi-instrumental duo imply Sigur Rós—whose sparse, gorgeous soundscapes should stay out of the hands of most bands (just not SoftSpot's). Their new LP Ens mixes that frigid patience with the snap of post-rock educated guitar and even percussive flavors more common to world and Afropop. Throughout, Sarah Kinlaw's vocals alternate from ghostliness to confidence, and on to Chelsea Wolfe-style feral sputter-and-snap. By only hinting at its touchstones rather than resting inert upon them, SoftSpot reveals that these excellent bands they imply can be springboards as much as anything. —Corbie Hill
