Fri., Feb. 12 Bowerbirds, Julie Doiron, Oryx and Crake The creaking acoustic/accordion combo of naturalistically minded Bowerbirds gets richer on their latest.

Sun., Feb. 14 -- Tortoise, Disappears Tortoise ruled a cerebral corner of indie rock during the '90s. Bitney, drummer/producer John McEntire, bassist Doug McCombs, drums, vibes and keyboard player John Herndon, and guitarist Jeff Parker looked to the spacious intricacies of jazz to guide their brand of so-called post-rock.
