Sunday, January 12: Jam With The Weeks 

Signing with Kings of Leon’s label in 2012 proved to be quite the bellwether for the Weeks. Their latest album, Dear Bo Jackson, rings loudly with the Southern indie rock that the Kings are well known for. Singer Cyle Barnes’ deep voice offers an interesting contrast to the bright, gentle chords in the background. Take “King-Sized Death Bed,” for example. Samuel Williams’ guitar work glides around the stratosphere of the melody, allowing plenty of room on the ground for Barnes’ vocals to fill out the low end. Probably the most enticing song on the album is “Chickahominy,” which diverts from the typically upbeat paths taken on most other tunes here. Williams’ guitar lines lead the band toward post-rock fields at certain points. It’s a reflective nod to life and memory (with great keys work from Admiral Collier) that closes the album out with aplomb. (Sandy)
