Tucson-based four-piece M. Crane is getting ready to release a new EP, marking the occasion with a release show. Recorded at downtown Tucson's Saint Cecilia Studios with Steven Tracy, M. Crane's Sweethearts EP features seven tracks from the relatively new group. With a moody, broody ambience decorated with cold and faraway feeling textures only to shift into moments that change pace with loud and distorted guitars, the alt-indie act expresses a sort of early-to-mid 2000s nostalgia that feels, at times, a little like Jets to Brazil or The Promise Ring and others sort of like The Mars Volta when intensity builds.

M. Crane will be performing live at Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) on Wednesday, Jan. 20. The show kicks off at 8 p.m. with local acts Rotary Speed Dial and Digital Persuasion opening. The concert is free and it is a 21 and over event
