M. Pyres & the Skygaze Family Band at the hi-dive

Fort Collins's Castles started as a solo project, but eventually Matt Sage's sophisticated electro-indie pop evolved into an impressive three-piece, experimental rock band. After retiring that outfit, Sage went fully into exploring the possibilities of a lo-fi recording approach and released the hushed yet intense Consider Me, Ghost under the moniker M. Pyres, suggesting, even if in a purely symbolic way, an artistic rebirth. Subsequently, Sage assembled a band and pushed his developing sound beyond evocative introspection. M. Pyres & the Skygaze Family Band (due at the hi-dive on Thursday, September 3) performs with a sense of outward joy and exuberance, like a punk-rock band informed by a gentle sensitivity and wracked with possibilities.
