[INDIE'S GOT SOUL] The injection of pure, uncut soul music into indie rock has been the one thing that has revived that genre's graying body of late, and you can hear it in the the growling R&B attack of Thanks. This Portland sextet is blessed with a vocalist—named Jimi Hendrix on the band's Facebook page—who manages to find that scratchy middle ground twixt the worlds of Fiona Apple and Sharon Jones. She's abetted by a group that settles quickly into a bass-heavy groove, kicking at the underbrush with shoegazer guitar swells and some extra low end provided by the band's cellist. Thanks' six-song debut, Silver Scars Will Be Our Constellations, self-released last year, carries a little more ’70s Stax-era fuzz and grit, and gives away the influence of glassy '00s New Wave-dipped rock. It's a tidy little package of musical moods, and holds plenty of hope for the future of this young outfit. Rio Grands, the new incarnation of the group formerly known as Rocky and the Proms, opens this show with a set of breezy lounge-soul jams.
