The Loom
"For The Hooves That Gallop, And The Heels That March"
Playing on Tuesday at Mercury Lounge
(217 E. Houston St., East Village)
Get: Tickets ($10) | Directions 

The music of Brooklyn quintet The Loom weaves rich chamber folk through noisy rock.

The band has won over fans and critics with its pleasurable, multi-hued sonic tapestry fashioned from joint male and female vocals, a varied instrumental palette that includes the French horn, banjo, and mandolin and good ol’ fashioned band chemistry.

Since forming in 2006, Loom members Jon Alvarez, Dan DeSloover, John Fanning, Sarah Renfro and Lis Rubard released a debut EP, At Last Light, in 2008, and a full-length album, Teeth, last fall.
