The Red River 

8 p.m. Wednesday, January 12. Cicero's, 6691 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

It's a mystery why the Red River isn't wildly popular. The Portland, Oregon-via-Long Beach, California, act wowed a small (but receptive) crowd at the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center in October, before the release of its new album, Little Songs About the Big Picture. That collection is full of small joys: rhythms pitter-pattering like a heartbeat, stately chamber-music arrangements, drive-by synthpop flashes and sincere harmonies. Picture is a winter album, suitable for playing while you huddle under a blanket for warmth. Fans of Lost in the Trees, Azure Ray and Luna will find much to like.
