Pick: Stornoway

May 14
Stornoway w/ Horse Thief
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com

British indie folk act Stornoway's sound make sense in a post-Midlake and post-Mumford and Sons world. Their songs can vacillate between the low-key and the utterly triumphant. This group of Oxford University students seems to have brought a schoolboy's precociousness to these acoustic-led pop songs. It's roots reach back to English folk traditions, but with a stylized delivery that gently calls to mind the Decemberists. The band quickly built a following in the United Kingdom, where they caught the eye of 4AD. That label released their sophomore album, Tales From Terra Firma, which came out earlier this year.
