Madison band Heavy Looks released a debut album of bittersweet power-pop in 2015's Waste It Right. On tracks like "LHF," "Packing Heat," and "Grin & Bear It," guitarists Rosalind Greiert and Dirk Gunderson trade short, prickly phrases and lead-vocal duties. They're concise but resourceful songwriters, finding a lot of little pockets in the songs to add a bit of thoughtful melodic character, and Greiert's vocals especially come through with a mix of genuine sadness and witty self-deprecation. Heavy Looks play here as they prepare to record a follow-up to Waste It Right, sharing the bill with Madison psych-rock adventurers Carbon Bangle, local duo Rae, and Austin band Finite Fidelity. —Scott Gordon
