Bryan Kveton (Sunjacket) and Brad Sawicki (Ancient Friends) concocted a simple but potent mix of indie atmosphere and rock riffs for Stars Align.
Kveton and Sawicki traded off lead roles while playing stripped-down versions of their songs. Sawicki said they spent a lot of time putting the session together, and the effort really showed. Songs like Heart of Cold and Alligator blended vocal harmonies, guitars, and even basic beats from an iPhone to maximum effect.
A dance break provided by Robyn’s Dancing on My Own kept things moving, and a cover of Beck’s Debra ended the night on a happy note.
