Every Friday evening, RVA Magazine brings you an excellent playlist curated by influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This week, we get some wonderful sounds put together for us by Cardinal, an up-and-coming Richmond quintet with a wonderful sound of their own. Growing out of short-lived local math-rock trio Majjin Boo, Cardinal combine the intricate guitar melodies of math-rock with a stronger melodic sense and a layered depth of sound.
Cardinal just released their latest single, “One Wing,” and will be playing at The Camel on Wednesday, April 3 with Massachusetts group And The Kids (more info here). Their weekend playlist gives us a preview of their live performance by featuring both of their recent singles, then goes on to present a smorgasbord of post-rock, indie, math-rock, and emo tunes that’ll fill your weekend with inspiration.
