Seattleites are lucky that the unabashedly pleasant trio of Charles Bert (vocals), James Werle (guitar) and Ethan Jones (bass and keys) made it out of Werle’s basement. Drawing more than a handful of comparisons to Belle & Sebastian, the band’s melodic acoustic guitar and tender vocals piece together airy and twee tales of troubled relationships and heartbreak. Pure, tenderhearted emotion meshes with introspective ballads and bouncy pop tunes that appeal to even the slightly bookish amongst us. MAPC are celebrating the release of their sophomore full-length I Shouldn't Look As Good As I Do, accompanied for the night by local favorite Aqueduct’s piano-laden indie-pop hooks. With Skeletons with Flesh On Them. NICK FELDMAN
