A week ago, fellow indiemuse writer Dave and I went to see Chicago math rock up and comers Maps & Atlases (who we interviewed and hope to have posted within the next week!). Although openers Rahim really didn’t wow me much, Oregon based labelmates Nurses arguably almost stole the show with their surreal performance. Nurses is three fellows who create a unique blend of reverb drenched indie pop that almost hints at the freak folk genre given to bands like Animal Collective. On stage, the three members played a set of wild ballads driven by bouncy piano, strange loops and samples, and eerie yet strangely catchy vocal harmonies. Their performance was truly awe-inspiring and I urge you all to catch them if they ever stop by your area. Although the band only has one LP out on Sargent House, the material they played on tour will be featured on their upcoming LP Apple’s Acre, due out early next year. Luckily you can hear 4 demos from the album on their myspace so check it out and keep an eye out for Apple’s Acre next year!
