Critic’s Pick – The Avery Set

B y Kyle Melton

The Avery Set

Nashville quartet the Avery Set digs deep into the fertile soil of their homebase of Nashville with their latest album, “Returning to Steam,” presenting an engaging blend of vintage twang fused with modern indie sensibilities. Led by Michigan natives and high school friends guitarist/vocalist Chris Zehnder and drummer Jake Bartlett, the band earned high critical praise for their latest release and an equally impressive live show. On “Returning to Steam,” the Avery Set melds Texas swing, heart-on-the-sleeve confessionals and ambient textures over the course of 13 tracks. As the band veers from rollicking rockabilly toward more earnest, delicate passages, they weave an intriguing tapestry of Americana that could easily earn them a wider audience in the coming year. The Avery Set will perform on Friday, March 11 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth St. Also on the bill is the Rebel Set. Doors at 9 pm. Admission is $5 for 21 and up.
