INDIE ROCK | Roz and The Rice Cakes 

While its disarmingly sweet name may call to mind the surf rock bands of yesteryear, Providence, Rhode Island's Roz and The Rice Cakes is not a group to take lightly. Led by enigmatic singer and multi-instrumentalist Roz Raskin, the band's latest single, this year's "Do You," smuggles a wonderfully Caribou-esqe rhythm through deceptively simple loops and atmospherics. It's a confident, assured song that provides a natural evolution from the band's impressive 2014 LP, "Need to Feed," which called to mind Julia Holter fronting Local Natives. Its new record, "Devotion," is due later this month via Team Love Records, and is certainly not to be missed.

Roz and The Rice Cakes will perform with Attic Abasement and Calicoco on Friday, October 20, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7. (21 and older show.);
