Cults, Sacco, Mood Rings

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Friday November 15 | $15 advance, $17 day of show.
Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 
[INDIE POP] Consider Cults to be the most easily digestible encapsulation of the cyclical micro-trends celebrated by music blog culture over the last three years: the dense, reverb-soaked melodies of Phil Spector productions; the distorted, saturated layer of goop the Jesus and Mary Chain slathered across their richest melodies. Throw in samples of actual cult leaders and some reliable girl-group rhythms and you’ve got a veritable goldmine of mass-market appeal. Beyond the edifice of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion’s woozy R&B-tinged arrangements is simple, compelling pop music that feels both timeless and fresh at the same time. Latest release Static can be a bummer at times, but you’re likely to leave with a smile on your face nonetheless.
