    RNDM made one of the most intriguing and irresistible debuts of 2013 with Acts.

    A brilliant partnership between Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, singer and songwriter Joseph Arthur, and drummer Richard Stuverud, the album comes to life with soundscapes that are as vibrant as its cinematic lyrics. If you didn't get to catch them last Fall when they toured, the trio is doing three special shows this May, in addition to an appearance on "Conan" May 9.

    This is absolutely a must-see show. Grab Acts prior to the gigs though. Spend time with all of it, of course, but pay close attention to the swaggering groove of "Modern Times", the pensive poetry encoded in "Darkness", and the wintry bliss of "Cherries in the Snow". RNDM doesn't sound like any of its members previous projects—or anything else out there for that matter. Shimmering melodies cascade within intricately elegant instrumentation. As expected, there are some unshakable hooks too.

    Nodding to a little psychedelia and adding a lot of rock 'n' roll, Acts remains essential listening.
