Christopher Owens, Echo Courts (Back Room)

When: Thu., June 18, 8 p.m. 2015

Chrissybaby Forever, the third solo record from former Girls frontman Christopher Owens, feels familiar. That’s both an asset and a liability. Chrissybaby’s fine but forgettable songs follow the same conventions as Girls and Owens’ first solo records, appropriating melodies and phrases from well-known ’60s and ’70s pop hits. “Heroine,” for instance, cribs from Buddy Holly’s “Everyday,” while “Another Loser Fuck Up” borrows from Big Star. It gives Chrissybaby an insouciance that should be appealing but mostly makes Owens seem simple. With each passing record, Owens is getting more redundant. —Patrick Wall
