Concert preview: Joshua Powell at Rumba Cafe

Joel Oliphint

Back in January of 2018, Joshua Powell spoke to Alive about shedding the latter half of his band name, Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery, partially as a way to slough off the folk-music trappings of such a moniker. Now, with brand-new album Psycho/Tropic released under his birth name, the transformation is complete, and the bracing, psychedelic sound is all the better for it as Powell uses surrealism to interrogate his former reality. (Safe bet)
