Houndstooth, Pure Bathing Culture, The Soft Hills

SHANE DANAHER
9 pm, Tuesday February 14 | Free
Mississippi Studios
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
 
[SLOW POP] Tonight’s show is officially a release party for Seattle quartet the Soft Hills’ debut album, The Bird is Coming Down to Earth, but the band’s accompanying acts allow the evening to also function as an unofficial showcase of the Northwest’s growing cabal of midtempo indie-rock workmen. Houndstooth and Pure Bathing Culture have both carved healthy homes for themselves in the woods of nostalgia-minded rock, and it appears that that verdure is still fertile enough to allow room for the Soft Hills. The quartet plays a slow-burning brand of psychedelic folk that never rises in tempo above a canter, choosing instead to focus on its remarkable depths of texture.
