Freak out 

Two groups from different parts of the world get their weird on.

Tonight’s pairing of Jennifer Gentle and the Dodos at the Beachland brings together two bands that appear to have very little in common. But dig deep, and astute listeners will uncover many similarities. Jennifer Gentle is an Italian experimental noise band whose members dig Krautrock, name-check Federico Fellini, and make music that sounds exactly like what you’d expect a song called “Telephone Ringing” to sound like. Their latest album, The Midnight Room, is like a hazy-shaded acid trip across Europe. San Francisco’s the Dodos also steer away from convention on their latest CD, Beware of the Maniacs. But they’re more freak folk by nature, tossing in acoustic-guitar riffs and folksy sentiment for a somewhat twisted variation on the blues.
