Chicago's seven-member indie-folk troupe A Lull is like the current crop of Blitzen Trappers and Fleet Foxes all playing at once, making a monumental mellow mess of reverb and itchy harmonies. It might be too easy to compare them to hyper-textural groups such as Grizzly Bear, since A Lull aims for a feeling of unease instead of rapture, overloading their songs with squelchy textures, bummer hooks, and dark-hued studio rattles. If you can't stay up this late, catch em at Piano's tonight at 8pm. With Dead Stars and the Tales.
