SEPARATE | MIGRATE: Austin, Texas' the Kraken Quartet puts math rock and the avant-garde on a grand scale.

Tonight (June 10), the Austin, Texas-based Kraken Quartet makes a rare appearance at the Bakery, supporting the group's latest album, Separate | Migrate.

The group creates a swirling instrumental concoction of percussion and electronics-based compositions, resulting in a lattice of influences colliding under one seriosuly introspective groove. There’s a little bit of Broadcast going on here, and a lotta bit of Tortoise. But the group's virtuosic playing and polyrhythmic ways are undeniable. The Kraken Quartet creates a sublime post-rock soundtrack, bringing Sunday evening in for a soft landing.

With Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel, Harandir the Grey, Flusnoix, and Majid Araim. $7-$10 (sliding scale). 7:30 p.m. (doors). 8:30 p.m. (music). 825 Warner St.
