Ramonda Hammer close their monthlong residency of free shows at the Hi Hat by celebrating the release of a new single, “Zombie Sweater.” The song has all of the local band’s trademark elements — eerie tendrils of woozy guitar that sprout into a full-blown, grungy hard-rock power, crowned by Devin Davis’ melodically yearning vocals. The title track of the group’s recent full-length, Whatever That Means, is a similarly dizzying blend of trippy guitars and aching vocal confessions. Even tunes that start out more softly and more intimately, such as “Goddamn Idiot” and “See,” soon shift into heavier passages. Fellow locals LA Font alternate between punky hard-rock bursts such as “Oh Me Oh My” and more jangling and mysteriously evocative indie-pop tunes like “Can’t Be Beat” and “Don’t Smile.”
