Yesterday we recommended tonight's show at Churchill's, which features local acts Ex Norwegian and the Jean Marie, opening for Nashville quartet Mother/Father. Here's a free taster from the headliners, a song called "Youngest Gods." While the band's other songs are full of swirly, reverb-laden production, this one is relatively stripped down and centers mostly on acoustic guitar. Still, though, it's full of aching, wavering vocals and minor-key melodic counterpoint, a pleasingly bittersweet combination that will appeal to fans of the Church, the Chameleons, and company. Go check them out now, before they get blogged about more.
Thursday, May 21. Ex Norwegian, the Jean Marie, Francis 7, and Mother Father. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Doors open at 8 p.m. Ages 18+ with ID. 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com
