You're in for double the fun at Club Congress' show tonight at 6:30 p.m. A Lull bring their winter 2012 tour to Tucson along with the band, Deleted Scenes..
There's something about A Lull that reminds me of Iron and Wine - and that's a good thing. The alternative-rock band uses softer vocals that blend in with their songs' melodies and varying rhythms. Here's what Ilene D. Palacios with Gozamos says about their album, Confetti:
The flavorful ingredients of this album are adventurous and diverse. There are elements of Ambient, Noise, Folk and Shoegaze all in an Experimental concoction. Each beautifully crafted song also contains complex layering of instruments and sounds, such as echoed pieces, industrial beats, fuzzy percussion and complicated harmonies. A Lull also music-ifies random sounds like breaking bottles, the crunch of garbage bags and what I think is an old ringing phone. The end of “Water & Beasts” seems to do opposite and use instruments to emulate an accidentally melodic printer rhythmically rolling out pages.
