Dave Simonett, Ark Life

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Tuesday October 08 | $13.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[ALL ALONE] “Interchangeable” would be a fitting adjective to describe singer-songwriter Dave Simonett’s music if it didn’t imply a sense of indistinctness. But his rustic songs can often just as effortlessly fall onto a record of either band he fronts, whether it’s the raved-up strings of Trampled By Turtles or electrified alt-country ramblings of his lesser-known band, Dead Man Winter. The poignant lyrics of TBT’s “Victory” carry the same sense of keen insight and melodic phrasing as DMW’s “Wasteland,” both rooted alongside a familiar palette of Americana acoustics and Simonett’s polished, high-lonesome lulling. And with more than seven excellent albums under his belt between the two outfits, you’ll want to hear the Minnesota native dishing out material from both.
