Smart Bets: Telecine

It's weird to describe noise-rock as cozy, but there's something to the guitar-bass-and-drums bombast of local trio Telecine that's strangely soothing. Maybe it's the fuzzy sweater hug of static at the core of each song. Maybe it's Andrew Larson's gentle tenor, or the rainy-day melancholy of the vocals that rise through the heavy churn and din. And how, even at the band's most aggressive moments, it still has an ear for melody (albeit a tattered-around-the-edges tunefulness). Telecine's new, self-titled record is nine tracks of edgy, twitchy, fuzzed-out comfort. The band holds an album release show at The Odditorium on Friday, Nov. 8. Pan also performs. 9 p.m., $5/$7. ashevilleodditorium.com.
