Valleys, Weeknight

When: Mon., June 24, 8:30 p.m. 2013


Sadness is the obvious emotion here, but the music is too transcendentally beautiful to be depressing. Though electric guitars are never far below the surface and sometimes even manage to break through, it's the thickly layered electronics that characterize this occasionally ambient and sometimes even industrial mood album. Matilda Perks and Marc St. Louis share vocal duties on every song, and it is the restrained loveliness of their voices that make this so very unrestrained music accessible, moving, and addictive. Also an electronic male-female duo, NYC’s Weeknight are less suited for solitary bedroom musings than a time-traveling space romance. The pair’s unison vocals are big and cavernous and darkly mysterious, but the glittering synths and surf guitars make for a vibe that is more intriguing than introspective. REBECCA WILSON
