Poly Record Release feat. Cortney Tidwell & Natalie Prass

When: Sat., Aug. 4, 9 p.m. 2012

Can we talk about how cute Poly’s music is? Because Poly’s music is ridiculously cute. Like, off-the-charts, out-of-this-world adorable. Formed late last year by local multi-instrumentalists Larissa Maestro, Eleanor Denig and Dan Sommers, Poly is the most deliberately pop-minded band the local rock scene has produced since Popular Genius. Unlike Popular Genius, which mostly just loved the shit out of flute solos, Poly’s retro-pop style recalls a classic early-century pop aesthetic with hints of twee and sunshine pop thrown in for good measure. If nothing else, Maestro & Co. are refreshingly sincere in their kazoo breakdowns and ukulele strumming. There’s nothing ironic about Poly, which makes them all the more special. The band celebrates their debut release — a 45 on pink vinyl (natch) — with support from Natalie Prass and Cortney Tidwell at what is perhaps the most unlikely venue for this sort of thing in town.
