FERNDALE, Mich. -- Thursday night at the Loving Touch in Ferndale saw Vancouver’s The Shilohs open at 10 pm with a set reminiscent of the more contemporary alternative of years past. A song by song breakdown:

1: A slow build-in for warm-up purposes
2: A “Radio Free Europe” interpretation with more drift in the progression.
3: The jangles and harmonizing are Crickets-like, yet the rhythm aimed for Cornershop at a jog pace.
4: Came off as U2’s “All I Want is You” in lyric delivery, with a mashup of Hootie’s “Time” and INXS’ “Stay with Me” making up the riff and beat.
5: Presented a nice touch through its lead riff going nighttime like many alt ballads before.
6: Though “About a girl from Chicago,” as the lead singer attested, Cornershop lingers in again on this one.
7: The 60s-tinged “La la la” is always a good closer.
8: That’s not jangling. That’s the string equivalent of tinkling (no, not that, though the band was getting their fill).
9: “This one’s for Tim. We played it at a barbecue, and he told me he liked it.” Slow and feet dragging, it becomes folk rock in its low to high to low vocal spectrum.

After the break, the Fresh and Onlys performed preliminary numbers before launching into their full House of Spirits album.

1: That introductory riff seemed to reverse the “Louie Louie” chord progression.
2: Enjoyed the surf licks lingering behind the bass and main guitar as they roar along, at 55 of course.
3: Good start that helps get early dance hesitance out of the system.
4: Vocals are rather close to Peter Schilling.
5: Absorbing.
6: Now we’ve reached 80's crooner peaks. And holy shit, channeling David Gilmour definitely requires the right moment. This was one of those moments.
7: Quite the steadfast march regarding its message.
8: Now it’s at 80 m.p.h.!
9: 85 now? The subtle rockabilly/surf licks are back at least, but now with closing feedback!
10: So two decades got skipped with the crooning style becoming more 50s on this one.
11: Nice to pick up on the voice and guitar building up their reverb effects for the rush home.
12: Moderate yet loud as a hall-clearing performance.
