Dash Hounds' 2016 debut EP, Eft, dwells in an alluring post-punk gloom. But the Madison band always gives the listener something well-constructed to latch onto, mostly Alivia Kleinfeldt and Brendan Manley's resourceful, winding guitar lines and the firm forward nudge of Kleinfeldt's vocals. "Dreamboy," "Weekend," and "Yes I Front" give all those melodic elements lots of space to unfold, showing a remarkably mature songwriting approach for a band whose members are mostly in their early 20s. The band's Shitty Barn debut (opening up for Milwaukee's Twin Brother) will be their last show until fall, as they finish writing and demoing new songs for their first full-length album. This will also be Dash Hounds' first show with a five-piece lineup featuring a new member, guitarist Isaac de Broux-Slone of Disq. —Scott Gordon
