With three percussionists and one guitarist, Kidi Band are an unusual local group. All four musicians also sing, giving the songs on their 2016 album, Gimme Gimme, a mesmerizing variety of sonic textures that are woven together cleverly. Tracks range from the disarming folk-pop intimacy of “Babies” to the percussively arty and bluesy vocal collage “Extra Expiration.” The aptly titled “Fever Driver” is layered with acoustic guitar over a curiously compelling rhythmic vocal push, whereas “Rooftops” is a stark pop ballad spiked with flurries of guitar. Kidi Band celebrate the release of a new single on a bill with enchanting folk-pop vocalist Jolie Holland. The Houston native twined her lilting voice together with her former Be Good Tanyas bandmate Samantha Parton’s on their 2017 collaboration, Wildflower Blues, a collection of low-key, rootsy ballads that are elevated by the duo’s dreamy harmonies. With Dylan Rodrigue.
