Posse will perform at 2 p.m. TODAY at The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages — and you don’t need a Treefort pass to attend (but you should get one anyway).
Posse is Sacha Maxim, Paul Wittmann-Todd and Jon Salzman. Neither slick nor intentionally rough, Posse’s music is meant to be a degraded reflection of their optimism, their hopelessness, their limitations, filtered through their abilities and interests.
Their songs are blankets designed with soft colors and graceful edges, made to lay over pits of anger and disappointment. They leap from mercurial, spacious leads to malevolent cross-eyed solos. The rhythm guitar drifts and phases while the bass tiptoes atop the drums.
Posse’s favorite music includes Galaxie 500, Suicide, and Yo La Tengo. Delay by Boss and Akai. Distortion and fuzz provided by Rivera, ZVex and Ibanez.
