The Shifting Sands, 1881

When: Mon., Oct. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

The Dunedin Sound, a sub-genre from the early days of indie rock, was born in the Shifting Sands’ hometown of Dunedin, New Zealand. While rooted in the jangly sound of their stomping grounds, their latest album, Beach Coma, drifts into more open spaces, at times teetering on the edge of alt-country. The Sands take their name from a song by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, suggesting that they’re the spiritual grandchildren of the classic psychedelic era. The Shifting Sands play on Monday, October 17, at SideBar in Burlington, with support from locals 1881.

Price: $5
