Beliefs - Faulty

Celebrating new releases from two local groups, this night tempered the rock'n'roll with plenty electronic textures, as well as Romar Johnson's stadium-worthy lighting rig. The new Habitat album pushes Beliefs further away from their shoegaze/dreampop origins and further into the electronic realm. Somewhat to my surprise, as they continue to exchange guitar shimmer for beats and as Jesse Crowe takes more and more of the leads the closest point of comparison in my mind for the band's trajectory is Young Galaxy. Whether that means they'll keep moving to ditch their guitars and embrace their electronic selves altogether remains to be seen — for now, there's still a satisfyingly loud rock'n'roll roar underlying things.
