Frontier Ruckus; American Aquarium, gogoPilot CL Recommends

When: Sat., March 24 2012
Price: $10
FRONTIER RUCKUS The Ramseur Records signee uses the plaintive sounds of bowed saw, melodica, fiddle and banjo to draw desolate wintry plains-portraits of loneliness and suburban decay (they’re from Michigan, and their 2010 full-length was called Deadmalls & Nightfalls; capiche?). But they also augment that with fanfaring trumpets and huge percussion for Matthew Milia’s summery warblings about first-blush love and familial redemption. So, somewhere between Springsteen’s Nebraska, the Palace Brothers’ Days in the Wake and Sufjan Stevens’ Michigan, Milia looks the present straight in the eye instead of pipe-dreaming about some never-never golden past and in the process creates something close to timeless. Early show. (John Schacht)
