Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires w/Water Liars
Like numerous young bands from the South, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires channel the soulful, country-tinged sounds born beneath the Mason-Dixon while summoning the crunch and cathartic howl of the punk records they likely discovered as teens. Indebted to the Allman Brothers as much as Minutemen, Bains and his band straddle the line between tradition and rebellion, serving nervy country-rock much akin to local mainstays Those Darlins and Glossary. While Bains shows little interest in poetics, show openers Water Liars take their name after a short story by Barry Hannah, a giant of Southern lit. Like Hannah’s fiction, songwriter Justin Kinkel-Schuster’s songs are gorgeous and painful tales of love, violence and the inherent loneliness of manhood. The band backs up Kinkel-Schuster with shimmering homespun tunes that split the difference between Gram Parsons and Slint.
