Best export: SET AND SETTING

Best export

You’ve got to give it up for Set and Setting. The BOTB-winning group has endured several lineup changes over the course of a five-year run (most notably the exit of Mark Etherington, who was one of two drummers the St. Pete post-rock band would use onstage), but Set and Setting soldiers on. Its 2017 album Reflectionless was one of last year’s best local releases, and on October 12 Set and Setting releases its fourth full-length, Tabula Rasa, via Berlin-based Pelagic Records before embarking on a 20-date European tour that takes the band to Germany, the United Kingdom, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and more. —RR
