Ages and Ages

When: Thu., April 2, 8 p.m. 2015

Unlike the plastic/overly-scrubbed “folk” sound on pop radio these days, Portland-based Ages and Ages make their claps, stomps and harmonious “ooos” and “ahhs” sound realistic and natural. Last year’s Divisionary, the group’s second full-length album, laid out what the folk-pop, family-like collective does best — just one spin of the record conjures images of late-night campfire sing-along sessions and summertime splendor. But the record isn’t all happy-go-lucky. Over the past couple of years, a number of people close to the band passed away (a mother, father, sister and more), and the record was made in response to tragedy (check out the title track, especially).
