Chris Robley will perform at 8 p.m., on Friday, April 17, at She Doesn’t Like Guthries, 115 Middle St., Lewiston.  Robley is a producer, songwriter, published poet, and a purveyor of jittery, pictorial pop music. As one critic put it, Robley (the “Stephen King of Indie-Pop”) performs music that “corresponds to the hyperactive zeitgeist” of this modern era of over-stimulation. Diverse, energetic, disturbing, searching, skewed, catchy, exposed, could apply to his music. Robley’s first two critically lauded solo albums, “this is the”  and “the drunken dance of modern man in love,” as well the album “Anxiety on Parade,” by his former band THE SORT Ofs, were produced with Adam Selzer (M. Ward, The Decemberists, Laura Gibson). Robley’s most recent solo release, “Ghosts’ Menagerie” (produced with Adam Selzer and Jeff Stuart Saltzman), is a band-oriented album that combines catchy, sometimes psych-folk, noir-pop tunes and a somewhat sparer production style with tales of heartbreak and domestic decline.There is no cover.
