There’s a hypnotic, almost dream-like quality to the sounds coming out of VARY LUMAR’s collective dome: equal bits alt-rock and electronics, all intertwined in creating an emotive whirlwind of vibes that feel like edgy, psychedelic improvisations. Here on “Hysteriatype,” the standout track from new album The Jig Is Up, the Lumar four slow their moody roll just a touch, soundtracking the delicate descent of a Percocet-fed melody tripping down a progressive-rock rabbit hole. The Jig Is Up gets the proper release treatment this Saturday, April 23, at Church (after that monster metal matinee finishes, of course — see “Cellars,” below) on a stellar bill o’ Boston rock with the Lights Out, the Brightest Lights, Black Fortress of Opium, and the Backup Factor. Before the dual “Lights” bands begin to flicker off and on — first they’re off, now they’re bright! — grab the Vary Lumar “Hysteriatype” MP3 below.
