The beautiful vocal harmonies of the opening seconds set Tone Poems off on the right foot, then proceed to weave magic through all 48 minutes. Prominent piano and oboe work further distinguish All My Pretty Ones' indie folk, while frontman Derek Schmidt's songs, as somber as they are riveting, make for an emotional, head-on listening experience.

At the Uptown (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland) on Mar. 18. 9 p.m., free
