Your Daily Lick: Stomacher

Stomacher (self-released)

The moniker In Reverent Fear didn't seem to suit this refined San Francisco pop/rock quintet. Its new name, Stomacher, is slightly less imposing, but also more ambiguous. The music is arguably ambiguous, too - at times dim and wispy, others bold and operatic, its components are continually in flux. It drags a bit, but the mystery makes it worthwhile.

At Slim's (333 11th St., San Francisco) on August 7. 8:30 p.m., $13-$16
