WAMU's Bandwidth Presents: AversWAMU's Bandwidth

The Richmond, Va., psych-rock quintet Avers is a supergroup of sorts, with players from folk-pop heavy hitter The Head And The Heart and established Richmond bands Mason Brothers, Hypercolor, The Trillions and Farm Vegas. On its 2014 debut LP, Empty Light, Avers twists those bands' sensibilities into a wicked amalgam of rock from the '60s and later.

There's a streak of shoegaze, a trace of '90s alt-rock and a whole lot of Neil Young & Crazy Horse on Empty Light, and Avers reduces them to a pungently catchy concoction in "Girls With Headaches," which it recently pummeled out in WAMU's studio before a gig at the Washington, D.C., venue Black Cat.
