Wednesday, April 24 – Laura Stevenson
with Field Mouse
54 N. Orange Ave.
On her new LP Wheel, released just this week on Don Giovanni Records, New York singer-songwriter Laura Stevenson (of the Cans fame) has upped her game with production by Kevin McMahon (Swans, Frightened Rabbit), strings by Grammy-winning violinist Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Antony and the Johnsons) and brass by Kelly Pratt (Beirut, Arcade Fire, David Byrne, St. Vincent). The result is a more seasoned, elegant and voluminous rendition of her folk-hearted pop, something that should sound grand with this full-band performance. But we’re at least as amped to see opener Field Mouse. Not to be confused with the pluralized and much more twee Brits the Field Mice, this Brooklyn band is a potential star for Small Plates Records, the same label that reps recent Orlando breakout Day Joy. Powered by shoegaze and indie-rock sinews, their wide-horizon dream-pop boasts exceptional body and tone. Though they’re under the radar, they’ve got very promising shine, which is why you should see them now. – Bao Le-Huu
