Live Bands

Saintseneca, Vikesh Kapoor, Cold Mountain Yeti

When: Fri., March 21, 8 p.m. 2014

Saintseneca lead singer Zac Little puts all those folky posers out there to shame — he actually grew up on a farm in Appalachia. His group is based in Columbus, Ohio, but the experiences of his youth permeate all of his music. Still, the sound is at times contradictory. The traditional acoustic folk elements are all there, but so is an eerie indie-rock sound. Saintseneca’s new album Dark Arc arrives April 1. In the meantime, listen to the three tracks available for preview to get a taste. “Uppercutter,” with its awesome use of tinkling piano, especially is worth a couple of spins.
