Tonight’s show doubles as the record release for Charms’ Human Error, their debut LP produced by heavy and weird music tastemaker Randall Dunn. Shifting from a jangle-driven and upbeat sound into a more layered and pervasive approach the past few years, Charms now capture a new intensity. They accent cavernous and tunneling post-punk riffs with sharp, intricate guitar stabs for a dystopian feel that seems at home in Seattle. The propulsive and hypnotic ambient doom/unclassifiable experimentalisms of Nordra (Zen Mother’s Monika Khot) never fail to surprise and engage live. Miscomings are as delightfully discordant as they come, blistering with yelps and a wall of chaotic, noisy guitar feedback reminiscent of the Skingraft and Three One G labels’ output. The trio’s Bag of Knives cassette was one of last year’s best (and most overlooked) local releases, so let’s hope a follow-up is coming soon. BRITTNIE FULLER
