Tonight’s Concert Picks: Maritime at Johnny Brenda’s, Trentemøller at TLA

After a four-year musical hiatus, Maritime released its latest full-length, Human Hearts, via Dangerbird Records earlier this year. Human Hearts is a feel-good anthem of indie rock and right at home on Dangerbird, whose other artists include other big names such as Silversun Pickups and Minus The Bear. Driven by percussive runs and upbeat electric guitar, Human Hearts focuses little on lyrical complexity. Instead, it is clear that the members wanted to produce a straightforward rock record that would establish the groundwork for a fun live show. The new release sparked an influx of tour dates and reviews for Maritime, whose website had remained untouched since 2008. Although gigging grungy rock venues might no longer be the top priority for the Wisconsin-based family men, their now-constant web updates prove that they’re excited to hit the open road and promote Human HeartsMaritime performs with The Life And Times, Deleted Scenes, and Victor Villarreal at 9 pm at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $10-$12. —Caitlyn Grabenstein

Danish electronic artist Anders Trentemøller (who simply goes by Trentemøller) is known for his compositions, his remixes, and his visually arresting live performances. His latest electronic album, 2010’s Into The Great Wide Yonder showcases his talent for composing original music as well as manipulating the sounds of others. He paints chilling landscapes of sound, and enlists a variety of vocal talents. On the tracks with vocals, Trentemøller incorporates the voices of his contemporaries such as Dane Marie Fisker and Josephine Philip with seamless expertise. On several of his instrumental tracks, such as “Shades Of Marble” and “The Mash And The Fury,” he expands from his well-known minimalist sound with snowy distortion. He’s currently touring the U.S., so make sure to catch him while he’s in town tomorrow night. Trentemøller performs at 7 p.m. at Theatre Of Living Arts; tickets to the all-ages show are $20. —Naomi Shavin
