Tonight's Concert Pick: Peasant's record-release show at World Cafe Live - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Peasant (aka Damien DeRose) makes music that is good for two types of days: cloudy ones, when you lie around the house doing nothing, and the sunny ones, when you lie outside doing nothing. DeRose’s breezy vocals and acoustic guitar are reminiscent of Elliot Smith, but with more hopeful lyrics. Like his previous songs, Peasant’s new single, “The Flask” (released off DeRose’s upcoming album, Bound for Glory) lulls you into a calm state of mind best enjoyed when you have time to relax. Peasant’s music doesn’t get your blood pumping, but its feelgood sound is perfect for enjoying the both the sunny and rainy spring weather. Peasant performs with Illinois, Former Belle, and Jacob Wolf at 8 p.m. at World Café Live; tickets to the all-ages show are $10. —Nicole Soll
