Emily Elbert would be considered remarkable just for her guitar playing, which segues from hard-edged funk and blues to more gently subtle jazz intricacy. But she’s an equally adept vocalist, weaving her soulful phrasing nimbly within the rhythms and “the silence in the space between the notes” of her guitar chords. The local singer tries to reconcile the opposing worlds of creationism and evolution in three succinct lines from the title track of her Evolve EP: “There’s a force that brings us together/It’s the same one that created us all/And now the point is to evolve.” When Elbert neatly eviscerates the heartlessness of the Trump administration in “True Power,” she transmutes her rage into a coolly funky jam-rock groove. Erin Bentlage is a jazzy, meditative Vermont singer-pianist, whereas guitarist Molly Miller avoids flash in crafting skeletal, austere instrumentals.
