New Madrid 

When: Fri., July 25, 7 p.m. 2014

The debut album from Athens, Ga., quartet New Madrid, 2012's Yardboat, was excellent, a collection of dreamy indie-pop tunes, but it sounds like the band has really found its stride on its second effort, Sunswimmer, released in February. Recorded on analog tape during a humid July, Sunswimmer finds New Madrid delving into new psych-rock territory, and it suits them well. The reverb-heavy guitar, eerie vocals and thumping percussion are overlaid with veils of texture and noise, which gives the entire project a worn-in, gritty feel. Some moments on the hypnotic album are tighter and upbeat, such as "Manners," but others are hypnotic and meandering, such as the 11-minute "Homesick," which ends with five minutes of instrumental wandering.
