Free Energy, Derek Torres, Marc Kuzio

When: Thu., March 28, 9 p.m. 2013

Because LCD Soundsystem frontman and general credibility trust fund James Murphy produced their 2010 debut LP, Free Energy has long been beset by unfair expectations. Detractors have sniped their unbridled élan and undetectable irony, seemingly demanding that their love of big, dumb rock 'n' roll and instant hooks be put to some grander postmodern use. Fuck that: Free Energy use slick riffs, sufficient woodblock and several woo-hoos to make narcotic pop-rock that suggests your mom, your dad or you cruising the streets, top-down, with school out for summer. Sure, their second LP, Love Sign, deals with adult emotions and squashes claims of suspended adolescence. But for the moment, just shut up and jump in. —Grayson Currin
