Indie-rock duo the Kills release their fifth album, Ash & Ice, just one day after this Portland appearance, so the setlist will probably be full of new material. But so far the record's first two singles—"Doing It to Death" and "Siberian Nights"—have been largely underwhelming. Opener LA Witch's SoCal séance-punk sounds like it's been drowned in reverb and resurrected with monotonously repeated incantations. These days the genre of fuzz-laden surf is oversaturated with subpar bands, but LA Witch's scorching riffs and sludgy melodies are the real deal. CIARA DOLAN
