EXPERIMENTAL POP | Madeline Mondrala 

Madeline Mondrala's 5-track debut is absolutely captivating. The EP, "Cloud," runs a little over 14 minutes total, but it covers an impressive amount of heartfelt ground. An indie pop singer-composer, Mondrala employs a host of musicians — playing Violins, Cello, Flute, Trombone, French Horn, on and on — to create the submersive, touching, and slightly experimental instrumentation her voice soars across. At times fragile and fleeting, in both instrumentation and vocalization, "Cloud" will occasionally take a right turn without warning and Mondrala lets go with power and energy — the track "Maybe," with its swirling string arrangements and floating vocals, is a prime example. It's an effect that should easily knock over a live audience.

Madeline Mondrala plays with Lap Giraffe, Beet Juice, and ISON on Sunday, August 10, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $6-$8.;
