PICK: Brunswick CD Release Party at the Camel, Saturday, May 16

With overlapping members and a beefed-up sax section, Brunswick is a bit like NoBS! Brass’ big little brother. Over the past half-decade, the band has built a following with a book of music featuring brassy covers of songs from the likes of Daft Punk and Frank Ocean. Perhaps sensitive to licensing costs, their new CD, “Five Years, is exclusively originals composed by trombonist/bandleader John Hulley. The multi-leveled architecture of the melodies shines clearly through on the recording. But you would have to play it lease-breaking loud to capture the sonic power of the band live. To do an A-B comparison, attend the release party at the Camel this Saturday. The all-ages show starts at 8PM. Chance Fischer and CGI Jesus open. Admission is $5.
