Decompress From Treefort With Races 

Wednesday, April 4, The Linen Building

Races, a sextet of 20-somethings helmed by Wade Ryff, make the marriage between twanging guitar and Moog synthesizer sound natural.

Ryff's bluesy crooning of "All my debts and all my dreams /will one day be swept clean," on "Big Broom" is filled out by the breathy backup vocals of Breanna Wood.

After the hectic, weekend-long Treefort Music Fest in late March, Races' Linen Building show on Wednesday, April 4, is being billed as a post-festival decompression. The gang is on a tour of the West to promote its new LP, Year of the Witch (Frenchkiss Records), which came out on March 27.

The album features recorded commentary about each track by Ryff and the gang before the song begins. On the opening and ending tracks, Ryff expands on the "Year of the Child" and "Year of the Witch," which like the album itself, furthers the band's thoughts on regeneration.
