With a clean, alluring sound that calls to mind fellow millennial NYC songsters Mitski and Frankie Cosmos, Brooklyn three-piece Poppies attracted a fair amount of attention with the Good EP, released last year on buzzy imprint Topshelf Records. Frontwoman May Rio’s disarming pipes can veer from tranquil to glass-shattering, often in the course of one song. Fans of Breeders and other ’90s indie greats, take note. Tuesday’s Flicker bill also features two local acts you should get acquainted with, if you haven’t already. Punk foursome Nihilist Cheerleader delivers potent commentary in the form of hyper-melodic party anthems, while Immaterial Possession’s goth-pop comes with a dash of atonal unpredictability.
