Isom Innis — a/k/a SOUTHERN BELLE — tends to overanalyze things. This might spell trouble for him, but it’s really worked out for the rest of us. Take “Walk Out,” a ridiculously danceable slab of riled-up dreampop that you’d never guess was a cathartic purge piece about a lousy break-up until you sat and listened to it over and over on your headphones — and you will.
A big boo-hiss for NEON INDIAN,
who announced today that they're cancelling their scheduled appearance
at GREAT SCOTT tomorrow night -- which was to have been one of the
bigger cards for this week's electronic-music festival TOGETHER BOSTON.
Instead, tomorrow night they'll be appearing on JIMMY FALLON. We're
trying to figure out what to call this -- a reverse McCain?
Scott gig has been re-scheduled for March 9, and all tickets will be
honored at the later date. That said, we highly recommend showing up at
Great Scott tomorrow night anyway, since the opening bands -- Portland,
Oregon's SOUTHERN BELLE and Boston's own MYSTERY ROAR
-- will be playing. After the jump: Mystery
Roar plays the Together Festival national anthem.
