After just five years, Brooklyn's Renaissance art-chamber post-punk literati Extra Life bid farewell at 285 Kent. Shepherded by schoolteacher Charlie Looker his Morrissey-cum-Antony pipes and freakazoid wordage, the band meticulously constructed sublime avant-folk and orchestral-metallic damage. Last year's Dream Seeds is a heck of a way to go out. Fear not, Looker enthusiasts. The frontman already has a new band under the predictably cryptic moniker "Seaven Teares" and new album Power Ballads is due in March via Northern Spy.
