Abram Shook in-store at Waterloo Records. “Landscape Dream,” Shook’s follow-up to last year’s solo debut “Sun Marquee,” sports a similar album cover, trading an orange-red color scheme for a blue-green one. The two records, both released by prominent local indie Western Vinyl, indeed feel in some respects like companion pieces, highlighting Shook’s high-pitched vocals against a blend of electronic and organic arrangements. Free. 5 p.m. 600 N. Lamar Blvd. waterloorecords.com.
