Some '90s music cats on their second or third lives are coming to the Treehouse Sunday to show off their respective leaps from the solemn indie-rock subgenre slowcore into familiar folk sounds.

Some '90s music cats on their second or third lives are coming to the Treehouse Sunday to show off their respective leaps from the solemn indie-rock subgenre slowcore into familiar folk sounds.

For ex-Karate kids Geoff Farina and Gavin McCarthy, it's Glorytellers, a band that eschews what made their old outfit so unique. Glacial drift tempos, Berklee-bred jazz tendencies and emo brooding have been replaced by expertly plucked acoustic guitars and straightforward songcraft. It's all quite warm and welcoming.

Also appearing is Curtis Harvey, late of Brooklyn slowcore royalty Rex. Harvey's solo debut, Box of Stones, follows the same pattern as Glorytellers, stripping away the sonic deluge of his former band and leaving behind bare-bones acoustic numbers. There's still a hint of mystique in this music, but now it's borne of minimalism, not excess.
