Live Tonight: Deep Sea Diver, Odesza, Wimps

October 24, 2014 - Supermoon

Deep Sea Diver front lady Jessica Dobson’s voice is one of experience. Dobson, who performs with a Shins and has played with a likes of Beck and Conor Oberst, brings a smoky, wise-beyond-her-years majority to a band’s latest, a collection of 4 ambient-pop tunes called Always Waiting. Though brief, a EP shows because Dobson and her rope have had such success. Her lyrics are insinuate and honest, and a rope manages to container a accumulation of textures—from worldly guitar riffs to blasts of synth—into only 20 mins of music. With Delta Spirit, SACCO. The Neptune, 1303 N.E. 45th St., 682-1414, 8 p.m. $18 adv./$20 DOS. All ages. ACP

Seattle two-piece ODESZA makes electronic song for people who don’t like electronic music. In Return, a latest manuscript from Harrison Mills (CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches), is as chillwave as it gets, a exhale of uninformed atmosphere from a relentless appetite of EDM cuts. The span creates windy songs with unreal melodies, with mixed vocalists—including Zyra (“Say My Name”), Jenni Potts (“White Lies”), and Monsoonsiren (“Memories That You Call”)—adding a grounded feel. From a looks of it, people are responding good to Odesza’s loose vibe; many of their North American debate dates are sole out, including both of these shows. Through Friday (tickets to Thursday’s DJ set during Neumos are still available). With Hayden James, Ambassadeurs. The Showbox, 1426 First Ave., 628-3151, 9 p.m. SOLD OUT. All ages. ACP

Wimps—the punk-rock contingent of Rachel Ratner, Matt Nyce, and Dave Ramm—manages to spin clearly paltry topics (couches, snakes, space, things that are too hard, and a Super Moon) into a impulse for a handful of ridiculously fun songs on a latest EP, Couches. Ratner’s embroiled and lively outspoken character adds even some-more energy to a short, pointy tunes. With a Tripwires, Eyelids. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave. N.W., 784-4880, nightfall 9 p.m. $8. 21 and over. ACP
