Weatherman, Dosh

Chicago trio Weatherman write wistful pop songs that pick you up and carry you through a space simultaneously crisp and cloudy. Annie Toth’s airy yet soulful voice floats above the nostalgic piano melodies and minimalist harmonies she constructs. New, unexpected sounds introduce themselves, elevating further the narrative Toth creates. Songs like "Wild Geese" pivot between contemplative post-rock and a driving, alternative pop character, often defined by drummer Jason Toth’s confined (yet never hindering) rhythmic direction. Weatherman play here behind a new self-titled EP, recorded at Chicago’s Experimental Sound Studio. Minneapolis one-man sound sculptor Dosh constructs everything from gritty, broken beats, to a drifting ambience of intermingling textures, to erratic collections of vibrant, splashy colors. Dosh is adept at blending genres and styles in a way that proves both seamless and honest, walking the line between challenging and accessible. —Emili Earhart
