Not sitting idle since forming, the trio also offered a rich pair of new pieces newly worked up since the album's release: a smoky club-noir-tinged meditation "about metaphorically drowning in love," as Tander explained it, and one full of Mediterranean folk flavor that verges on sultry. They're another step onward from what's on the album, yet appropriately fit as part of the same bigger picture. "The source of now is here," she sang to send us off during an encore adapted from another Rumi poem, and this audience walked away with a most sublime reminder of how everything's connected after all.
