It might seem to The Apache Relay that the road to national recognition is paved with tiny, hard-won steps. Still, the Nashville-based indie-rockers play each show as if it’s an audition for world domination, and songs — dating back to the unforgettable “Lost Kid” — pair roots swagger with pop savvy. Those tiny steps are getting bigger: The band’s new, self-titled album streamed exclusively on Paste.com and was praised by Rolling Stone. According to The Huffington Post, “it represents a much-needed shift in our obsession with folk music.” The Apache Relay returns to The Grey Eagle on Wednesday, May 14, as part of a tour with The Weeks. Show at 9 p.m., $10 advance/$12 day of show. thegreyeagle.com. Photo by Melissa Madison Fuller
