Helio Sequence

BRANDON WIDDER
7 pm., Saturday May 10 | $25.
The Old Church
1422 SW 11th Ave.
 

[EPIC TWO-PIECE] It’s been said before that the Helio Sequence’s Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel sound far bigger than a mere duo. Saturated with glimmering analog synths and bright, sinewy guitar riffs, their music becomes more grandiose and operatic with every album, with Summers’ fine tenor hovering distantly above Weikel’s pulsing drums and the resounding crash of cymbals. Negotiations, the band’s ace 2012 effort, delivers a flurry of spaciously orchestrated movements covering solitude and atonement, flanked by descending arpeggios and the atmospheric nuances surely indebted to primetime Brian Eno.
