Tonight in Music: Tiny Vipers

Tiny Vipers
(Triple Door) The other night, after midnight, I was walking down a big, empty street with lit-up but vacant banks, half-dark restaurants, apartment entryways, a girl waiting for a bus to the University District, those piscine parking meters, beeping ATMs, freezing wind, the light-black sky, etc., etc. I was listening to Tiny Vipers’ Hands Across the Void and feeling a surge of hometown pride. There are things about Tiny Vipers, and not just the softness, the youngness, or the localness, that remind me of Fleet Foxes. Both make me think (for whatever reason) of campfires, and both of them are on Sub Pop, headquartered a few blocks from the street I happened to be on. Hands Across the Void, according to Sup Pop’s website, is “empty, spare, and minimal—except where the nuanced, abstract noise implies that someone is on the other side, listening to you listen.” I’ll buy that.
