O' Brother, Native, Daylight

PETE COTTELL
7:30 pm., Monday August 26 | $12.
Backspace
115 NW 5th Ave.
 
[POST-HARDCORE] As far as scene credentials go, Native’s deck is stacked: a record produced by These Arms Are Snakes drummer Chris Common, a deal with Sargent House, enough Emperor gear to level a cornfield. The path the band’s jagged, math-y emo-core travels is well-worn by At the Drive-In acolytes, but the precision and potency of Native’s attack is what will stand up in the end. Guitars teeter between noodled, Don Caballero-esque scribbles and rich minor chords, serving as a melodic anchor to breakneck dynamic shifts courtesy of a rhythm section that’s certainly worn out a Converge record or two in their time. The vocals are of the bro-down throwdown variety, but there’s enough movement and melody throughout to allow them to serve as a detriment.
