Now that the days are getting warmer, the weekly all-ages gathering Grand Ole Echo has started up again in earnest. Although Pearl Charles is this week’s headliner, the local singer-guitarist’s music ranges far beyond the series’ usual focus on country-rock and Americana performers. Charles’ self-titled cassette EP on Burger Records glows with a charming assortment of garage-rock and psychedelic-pop originals. “What Can I Do” is a girl group–style chanson anointed with echoing harmonies and jangling guitar, whereas “You Can Change” is a harder slice of ’60s-style garage that’s leavened with groovy keyboards from Matt Adams, Charles’ bandmate in The Blank Tapes, who also adds twists of guitar to “Night & Day.” There are hints of country-rock grandeur on the dream-pop ballad “Idea to Her,” which is adorned with a lavish arrangement by Miguel Mendez and Joel Jerome.
