Together Pangea, Mozes & the Firstborn, Sueves 

When: Wed., Feb. 19, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
Formerly known as Pangea, William Keegan’s Los Angeles garage-trash band added the “Together” once they got a nine-to-five job with major label Harvest Records. The brand-spankin’ Badillac is decidedly more refined than their previous output, with less of the endearing reckless abandon that often got them compared to the Black Lips in ruff-and-tumble fun mode—they now occasionally redirect that energy into songs full of heartache and acoustic guitar (and that aren’t titled “Too Drunk to Cum”). The album’s best tracks are the ones that retain the youthful, noisy garage-rock bravado (“Alive,” “Depress”), but Together Pangea is more like Deer Tick these days—not that there’s anything wrong with that. The title track isn’t the kind of song that calls for a tallboy and loogies, but it’s a polished, unstoppable single, and I keep finding myself going back to it. —Kevin Warwick Mozes & the Firstborn and the Sueves open.
