But the sound of the group’s recent debut full-length, Callithump, is full-bodied and far from minimalistic. On the dynamic 2012 release, the trio explores traditional Appalachian music, swingin’ Jazz, Tin Pan Alley pomp and breezy Folk Pop, but all of it is filtered through Plume Giant’s distinctive vision, with hints of the avant-garde beneath the inescapable harmonies and lovely aura. The now Brooklyn, N.Y.-based trio performs a free show Thursday, Jan. 17 at MOTR Pub (1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine) with like-minded Cincinnati-based Chamber Folk ensemble The Happy Maladies. motrpub.com.
