Mood swings tomorrow night with Courtaud and Bobtail, Young Lovers, Tender Age

(Technically we're not supposed to talk about bands that aren't local, but Courtaud and Bobtail were based in the OC for four years, and continually come down to perform — they're currently on tour, and have played with some of the finest folks in the underground scenes: Shojo WinterCruelty Code, Media Jeweler, Young Lovers, Deep Fields, CTHTR. So they're pretty tight in my book, and worthy of mention.)

Inspired by a mythical 15th century French wolfpack that killed 40 Parisians, the experimental outfit — Alana Cook, Emily Wasilewski, and Andrew Quinones — come up with some very unsettling and vesperous sounds. The accumulated recordings are placid, lo-fi scrawls of peaking feedback, acoustic hum, and calm verse that poeticize the dismal realities of life. Their newest LP "My Love Who Never Was Will Never Be" ventures into narratives of depression, ennui, trauma, and exploitation. It's heavy with poignant use of reverb and sparse, minimalist arrangements — sadder than Hollywood sadcore, but less boxed into ambient soundscapes as Mojave 3 and Mazzy Star.

Thursday night, Courtaud and Bobtail joins Young Lovers (post-rock from the valley) and Tender Age (C86/noisepop from Portland) at the Ham & Eggs Tavern, DJ set by the lovely Izzy Sophia. Come out: you might cry, you might dance, and you just might find love. Listen to "Hanging Wall" below. - Ryan Mo
