DETROIT -- With doors opening at 8 p.m. Tuesday night, the Majestic Theater’s upstairs Magic Stick venue welcomed the New York-hailed Candles and that renowned Scottish ensemble that broke through in the early 1990s, the Trashcan Sinatras.

The music kicked off at 9 p.m. as the Candles jangled their way through a type of melodic night-time motif that seemed best fit as background instrumental for beer commercials. Still, the music hints at not only a respectful acknowledgement of their influences, but also the influences that they might share with some of the former.

According to the info section on the band’s Facebook page, “The west coast sounds of the seventies that snaked like a vine from Gram Parsons through Evan Dando and Ryan Adams nestle up nicely to (founding member Josh) Lattanzi.” A fitting reassurance, since it sounded as though the five-piece had reworked the Eagles’ “Lyin’ Eyes” guitar riffs during one of the set’s closing numbers.

At least a half hour passed when the Sinatras banged in. What totaled at +60 in audience head count for the Candles rose to +100 when the headliners kicked things off. With a set mainly comprised of songs from their latest album, In the Music, the Sinatras appropriately opened with the album’s first two tracks, “People” and “Easy on the Eye.”

Such songs highlighted the ballad-like indie-pop that the band long based itself on at least for this album, yet there were excursions to the days of I’ve Seen Everything when they went into tad more alt-driven renditions of “Send for Henny” and “Hayfever.”

Through a songlist of 19 selections from their catalogue, the Trashcan Sinatras did not allow past familiarity to override overall new discovery for the crowd of 100 that paid their way in to see and hear these once-again sensational Scots.
