Strand of Oaks and Christopher Denny

Strand of Oaks’ way-hairy frontman Timothy Sholwater looks like an outcast from Mastodon or some other fierce metal band, but the Indiana native is actually a sensitive, introspective singer/songwriter who rocks hard only sporadically. “Goshen ’97,” the single now playing on 89.3 the Current — featuring guest shredder J. Mascis — is one of the heavier gems on his breakthrough album, “Heal,” but other tunes have more of a melodic moodiness that range in style from Jim James-ian jams or a dark beauty reminiscent of Jason Molina, who is the subject of the track “JM.” Firebrand Arkansas tunesmith Christopher Denny opens.
