When the cabaret-ish, dark folk-ish Crystal Bright & The Silver Hands start to play, one can easily think of Helena Bonham Carter in Les Miz, of a Renaissance fair at night, of every Tim Burton movie ever. Bright now brings her chill and doom to their latest release, The Absolute Elsewhere, and stops at the Rockwood Music Hall on June 24. The weird yet enticing qualities of songs like “The End” (the album’s first song, ha-ha) and “Engastrimyth” prove that the group is a rare one. They can get away with accordions and harps and still pull you in: Bright’s voice is that good. Listen to a later single, “Fall Of The Seraph,” if you wish she sounded like a less harsh Amy Lee.
