KNIVES AND DAGGERS Time to crank the delay and dial the gain up, people, for on this night no guitar goes undistorted. That’ll certainly be the case when this Asheville five-piece molds their “turbulently loud” soundscapes on stage via its three-guitar lineup. In the studio, K&D blends in strings with the guitars and voices — picture Dirty 3’s Warren Ellis joining Explosions in the Sky, with Rachel Goswell and Neal Halstead chipping in occasional vocals — to create more nuanced and impressive dynamics. The result was the debut last summer of the elegant What Hurts the Most, 30 minutes of shoegaze glory. Mmmmm. Yummy. (John Schacht)
