SHOW: Friday at Joe's Pub ($17)

Portland Oregon’s Holcombe Waller has dabbled in performance art, dance, and film scores in addition to a successful solo career. The songs on his album Into The Dark Unknown were written as part of a theatrical work of the same name, and they are rife with the appropriate orchestration.

On today's download displays this orchestration in spades. Waller pulls together basic percussion, strings, and a simple keyboard line into a slowly unfolding opus. The sound and sentiment is theatrical in scope, which given the album's intention, makes a whole lot of sense.

Download "Hardliners" above and watch a video of him performing the song "Moses Says" in the video below. Holcombe Waller plays Joe's Pub Friday night.
