Crowfield at the Evening Muse tonight (10/6/2012)
CROWFIELD Initially, Crowfield may sound like a run-of-the-mill rock combo. But pay attention and, with repeat listens, the band’s songs fit snugly and unfold into straightforward, yet inviting, listenable roots-rock. Crowfield’s music is colored with psychedelic guitars, nicely woven lyrics and put together by a band that creates a big-yet-cohesive sound. They can hum along with acoustic songs that plead “use your inside voices, please,” to full-on rockers. The combo has the ability to hone in on stories and wrap them in music minus the unnecessary theatrics. The result is an honest sound from musicians who relish in the fact that, in the end, it’s simply about making good music, the type that sounds as warmly familiar years down the road as it does now. RIYL: Bodeans, Southern rock. With Noah. $10-$12. Oct. 6, 8 p.m. Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. 704-376-3737.
