Concert preview: Brick + Mortar at Ace of Cups

From the February 6, 2014 edition

“I think I finally found my way,” sings the Jersey-based drum and bass duo on “Bangs,” the title cut off its second EP.

And it’s undoubtedly true the dual musicians chart a steadier course here, holding to electro-tinged numbers that simmer without boiling over (the restrained, appropriately titled “Locked in a Cage”) and percussive burners that appear to be an attempt to synthesize adrenaline in sonic form (“Old Boy”).
