Few groups do as much with as little as Love Inks, a Texas ensemble that puts the mini into minimalism. The 10 tracks on the trio’s new album “Exi” (Republic of Music) combine sketchy drum-machine beats and spare guitar with the ethereal voice of singer Sherry LeBlanc into a wide-open pastiche where the empty spaces assume an almost physical presence. Indeed, it seems like the best visual representation of their music wouldn’t be a written paragraph but a depiction of what you see when you close your eyes. It’s a lovely and intimate listening experience; hard to say how this will go over live, but Love Inks opens for Antigone Rising at Chapel Hill’s Local 506 on Saturday. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $10-$12. See local506.com for details.
