FRIDAY

WHAT: Forth Wanderers, Featuring Zula and Poppys

WHO: Few bands enjoy such an endearingly short path to fame, where news of your début album may appear in your campus paper: Ben Guterl, the band’s co-founder and primary songwriter, bounced between the studio and junior-year seminars, and described his band’s quick rise to the Oberlin Review as “kind of overwhelming and a little nerve-wracking.” It’s also well deserved. The lo-fi, low-slung rock found on their four-song project, “Slop,” is confident and untainted, and Guterl’s mucky guitar tugs out Trilling’s coy confessions in all the right ways.” – The New Yorker
