Your Daily Lick: The Shants

Russian River Songs (self-released)

There’s an odd, echoey, melancholy sound to Russian River Songs. Which isn’t a bad thing —it’s excellent music to mope to. With lovely blues guitar and some fantastic songwriting, The Shants make deceptively simple music, a blues/country/rock hybrid that’s soothing to a troubled mind. Skip Allums’ gentle, pretty vocals and an overall Southern vibe seal the deal.

At Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St., San Francisco) on June 22. 8:30 p.m., $8. BottomoftheHill.com
