If the name Cara Beth Satalino rings a bell, it’s for good reason. The singer-songwriter used to call Athens home in the early 2010s, when she fronted the beguiling trio Witches. Satalino moved to Baltimore around 2014, but not before getting a new musical endeavor, Outer Spaces, off the ground. She’s since released material under that moniker on a veritable who’s who of indie labels, including Matador, Don Giovanni and Saddle Creek, and is returning to town Friday in support of her latest full-length album, Gazing Globe. The new record finds the DIY-minded folk-rocker looking inward, reshaping her identity on her own terms, without the influence of how relationships form and fashion her into something else.
