The Classical

Tue., April 28, 8:30 p.m.
415-621-4455
The Classical
When the Classical’s Diptych appeared in late 2014, it raised the aggregate value of the year in local music by a significant amount. For such a painstakingly executed collection of singular songs, the modest vessel of its arrival seemed ill-suited: a SoundCloud dump, each song deposited online like mere demos. That isn’t to say that worthy music doesn’t enjoy exclusive online release — especially in genres such as electronic music and hip-hop — but Diptych had an air of an album that was suited to, well, a more classical sense. Time Released Sound, a boutique Alameda label helmed by visual artist Colin Herrick, who deals in experimental music, handmade packaging, and coveted limited editions, is making headway in treating the Classical right. The duo’s appearance at Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St., San Francisco) on Tuesday celebrates the physical release of Diptych, the inaugural title on Herrick’s new imprint, Time Sensitive Materials. Let vinyl follow. $10-$12

Waxahatchee

Waxahatchee
Waxahatchee — the principal outlet for Katie Crutchfield’s spare but moving songwriting — and Girlpool — a similarly restrained, percussion-free duo prone to unflaggingly direct lyricism — are two musical entities that have adopted Philadelphia as home base. And it is a base from which the two groups depart often to tour, this time in tandem, appearing for one night together at the Great American Music Hall (859 O’Farrell St., San Francisco) on Wednesday. Crutchfield is supporting Ivy Tripp, her third Waxahatchee record and a rewarding exercise in unadorned, classicist indie-rock and pop, as much at home on Sarah Records as Saddle Creek. Except the album appeared through Merge Records, which imbues Waxahatchee with the sort of indie patina that people expect Girlpool to acquire before long. Originally from Los Angeles, Girlpool’s Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad deal clean guitar and bass leads arranged with such precocious craft that, like Crutchfield’s work, familiar conventions have staggering effects. It must be a Philly thing. $16
