If you ask drummer Nicholas Chiarella or guitarist/vocalist Crockett Bodelson of Alamo Sun to describe their music, they might offer semi-sensical labels like “dirt wave” or “soft-gazer.” Bodelson has said that it’s somewhere between rock and a hard place. Their washed-out recordings thus far are reminiscent of a more bombastic, psychedelic incarnation of The Strokes or a fuzzier Beat Happening. The duo releases a new EP, Living Room, at Counter Culture (930 Baca St., 995-1105) on Friday, July 19. Their performances are largely improvised, and Chiarella warned, “It may get a little loud.” Opening the show are two touring solo musicians — Yairms and Andrew Levi Hiller — who also prefer to avoid limiting, straightforward musical descriptors. The best way, then, to find out what the three acts really sound like is to check out the show. Doors open at 9 p.m.; cover is $5.
