Black Prairie, Houndstooth

When: Sat., Feb. 2, 9 p.m. 2013


Black Prairie and Houndstooth have both been around for a couple of years at this point, and ever since BP added lyrics to their initially instrumental lineup, both bands are fronted by ladies. That's where the similarities end. Black Prairie has always excelled at sounding timeless, but now that Annalisa Tornfelt has taken up singing duties on their second LP, A Tear in the Eye Is a Wound in the Heart, they also sound consoling and absolutely sure of themselves. If Black Prairie is the avuncular neighbor from whom you seek advice, Houndstooth is your older sister's effortlessly fashionable best friend. Katie Bernstein's laidback voice lands atop surf rock that's just lo-fi and spontaneous enough to make these veteran musicians sound like they all one day stumbled by accident into the same garage.
