Cape Francis, Hannah Sumner and Bonomo play The Revolution, #Vol. 29 on 07.28

National Sawdust’s monthly premiere of emerging local artists called The Revolution is set for its 29th iteration on Saturday, July 28 with a variety of new bands. The three local acts juxtapose each other in genre and songwriting, yet their sounds are engaging in their own distinctive way. Bonomo’s laid-back, silky jazz compositions are wonderfully playful and find grooves that slither around without becoming monotonous, and his somewhat subtle music contrasts his two contemporaries. Cape Francis brings subdued indie folk that transforms murmuring guitars into a roar of organic energy, whereas Hannah Sumner’s ethereal walls of synth pop wrestle with her restrained yet impassioned voice in a combination of natural and synthetic energies. These artists offer wildly different appeals and styles, doubling down on The Revolution’s commitment to diversity in sonic palettes. The show begins at 10 p.m. and you can listen to The Deli’s playlist featuring these acts below. -Tucker Pennington

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Hannah Sumner's ferocious ambient-pop

As heard in the songs “How to Stop” and “Waste Time” (streaming below), Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Hannah Sumner’s November-released effort, ‘To the Almost,’ is stubbornly beautiful. Impressive in its graceful gathering of folk, minimilasim, and pop, these drum-based tracks ferociously blast the soul’s inner blues while providing uplift in their very passion. The elegance of such contemporary acts as Doe Paoro and Dirty Projectors may be an influence on Sumner but her ability to update Fleetwood Mac’s wildness is possibly more remarkable. While Hannah Sumner does't currently have forthcoming shows listed, keep posted on her Facebook page. - Zach Weg
