Smart Bets: The Melodic

If the name The Melodic seems a bit too pointed (albeit sweetly so), the English folk ensemble has been living up to it. A collaboration between songwriters Huw Williams and Rudi Schmidt, the Melodic taps ’60s and ’70s British and American folk along with inspirations gleaned from international travel. “Our approach to recording our songs is almost as if painting,” says Schmidt in the band's bio. “Building layers, replacing others until we get the music to say what we want it to say." The group makes a stop at The Mothlight on Sunday, Dec. 1. Vikesh Kapoor and Hospital Call also perform. 9:30 p.m., $8.
