Radio Astronomer; Rachael's Cafe

Tuesday, 8 PM

Not to be confused with the light rock band Radio Astronomy, the similarly named Radio Astronomer will be playing Rachael's Cafe tomorrow evening. The music of these four performers from Boston is a psychedelic fusion that constantly turns itself on its head; "For You My Love," the band's sophomore single, released in 2005, begins with a light driving percussion in 4/4 time with descending harmonics, only to cut away to 2/4 time, and then back into 4/4 within the last thirty seconds. It's enough to jar the listener, but poised just long enough for the shift to sound appropriate and meaningful.
