Critics’ Picks: Overly Polite Tornadoes (Pittsburgh City Paper)

Kalamazoo, Mich., the hometown of Overly Polite Tornadoes, has a name as catchy as the band’s. Married couple Mark Andrew Morris and Holly Klutts-Morris make bedroom loop-pop with subtle vocals, full arrangements and double-helix-like harmonies. They’re also members of the band Glowfriends, who are in the same shoegazing genre. This year’s When You Wake Up follows the band’s seven-song EP, Almost, and those records have shown OPT to be a solid sonic wingman — this is music you can just hang out with, knowing it’s always up for a party.

See for yourself when the duo plays Club Café along with The Velcro Shoes,Claire With the Turban and Street Pigeons. Caleb Murphy 10:15 p.m. 56 S. 12th St., South Side. $7. 412-431-4950 or www.clubcafelive.com
