“Transcendental Texas folk and stargaze surf-western” comes to the Divided Sky this Saturday when the Deer arrives from Austin, Texas.

The band creates “psychotropic soundscapes and tranquil, vivid dream-pop,” according to its online biography.

“What began as the solo recording project of singer/songwriter Grace Park (The Blue Hit) formed its core in 2012 after the release of ‘An Argument for Observation’ under the band name Grace Park & The Deer,” according to the bio. “With upright bassist/songwriter Jesse Dalton (MilkDrive), guitarist/sound engineer Michael McLeod (Good Field, Richard Linklater film composer), and drummer/pianist Alan Eckert (Dimitri’s Ascent), Park found a collaborative team, and the band’s name was adapted to simply The Deer. ‘On the Essence of the Indomitable Spirit,’ their second album, exemplifies their liftoff into co-creation with a dynamic collection of songs dedicated to the memory of their friend and backup singer Stephanie Bledsoe.”

The band released their latest album, “Tempest & Rapture,” in May.

“One half is rooted and raring in surreal folk and Southern gothic, the other is pronking out in transcendental surf-dream wilderness,” according to the bio.

The Divided Sky is located near the intersection of Navahoe Drive and U.S. Highway 50 in Meyers, south of South Lake Tahoe.
