As the weird Americana, psych-folk hipster revival pushes maximum saturation, Columbus, Ohio combo Saintseneca is out to prove that good old-fashioned rock has a place in all this, too. Lead singer Zac Little splits the bass duties with multi-instrumentalist Steven Ciolek; what they share is an instinct to play only what the song needs, from the Peter Hook-ish attack of “Happy Alone” to the quiet-to-loud dynamics of the brooding and cavernous “Uppercutter.”
