I bought a NoSo t-shirt instead of getting a Lyft home. Given the fact I didn’t know who NoSo was before the show last Wednesday, my redirection of cash should speak to how much I enjoyed their set. NoSo’s music is a pure, genuine expression of the emotional spectrum on which they dance during any typical day. A warm, nostalgic mediation in “Suburbia”, a dysphoric cry of desire in “David”, the set was really just a taste of NoSo’s potential as a rising indie artist.
However, headlining the evening was Austin-based indie pop singer/songwriter Molly Burch, whose fourth full-length, Romantic Images, dropped last year on Captured Tracks. Anxieties of life and lovelorn tendencies have never seemed as ethereal as Burch presents them. Bathed in pink light with be-flowered mic, Burch turned lyrics about pain and insecurity into something soft and comforting.
