Incredible Yacht Control, Lubec

9 pm., Sunday January 13 | Free.

600 E Burnside St.
 

[BEDROOM SETS] Bret Vogel writes music in his bedroom that others could spend thousands of months in a studio without approaching. Hidden under a veil of lo-fi fuzz are slightly twisted, effortlessly beautiful pop songs which Vogel reportedly wrote mostly to amuse himself: His ’09 debut under the Incredible Yacht Control moniker wasn’t even intended to be released until friends convinced him otherwise, while his latest release, Amateur Hypnotist—a compelling collection of shoegaze-y post-punk tunes which sounds like it’s being played through a cheap car radio always on the cusp of losing reception—was just a $5 Bandcamp thing until others apparently coaxed him into forming a more serious live band around the name and songs. Should you be jealous and maybe just a little mad that this guy doesn’t want to milk his talent for understated hooks and moreish weirdness for money and fame? Probably. But you should also be grateful he’s now out playing these songs live again, and you can go see it without paying a cent.
