ALT-ROCK | Routine Involvements


Ambient trances encircle punk wails and surf rock noodles in The Routine Involvements' music. The band dances a few genres, but seem to sit comfortably in the shoegaze subgenre. The duo, Ben Corey and Atom Mac, stays nimble in its guitar and drums arrangement, while not sounding slim. Searching vocals, synth effects, and distortion give gravity which at times is volatile. "Future Days" (released March 2014) is the band's second and most recent album, out on local label, Dadstache Records.

Routine Involvements with Pleistocene, Painted Zeros, and Northern Spies plays Thursday, January 22, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $6-$8.,
