Your Daily Lick: Pollux

For the Ghost (self-released)



Imagine Jeff Buckley fronting a late-Nineties alternative rock band - from Soundgarden's catharsis to Radiohead's contemplation - and you're at least halfway there. This is conveyed with patience and utmost sincerity, from Carey Head's Buckley-esque howl to the band's direct yet emotional performance. Pollux's music would make a fine blanket for a cloudy day.

At Annie's Social Club (917 Folsom St., San Francisco) on July 22. 8 p.m., $5
