Fruition, Dead Winter Carpenters

BRIAN PALMER
9 pm., Friday March 22 | $12.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 

[WHISKEY ROCK] Fruition is simultaneously familiar and fresh. Between music that, at times, calls to mind the likes of Gillian Welch and Nickel Creek, among others, and with singer-mandolinist Mimi Naja channeling a slightly throatier Brandi Carlile, it is not hard to hear what sort of sound they are aiming for. Three-part harmonies make appearances throughout, mandolin solos pop up from time to time (and really, who doesn’t like a mandolin solo?), and whether it be a ballad or a more lively tune, these songs crackle with electricity. The band is all about energy, and it scores points for not resorting to copying Mumford & Sons or the Lumineers in order to make it happen.
