Elf Power, Let's Wrestle

When: Wed., Sept. 15, 10 p.m. 2010

English rock trio Let's Wrestle is witty, catchy and rocking—a rare triumvirate of virtue. The jangly guitar and singer Wesley Gonzalez's plaintive croon recall The Wedding Present, while the music's ambling crunch calls to mind Neil Young circa "Heart of Gold." The humorously downcast, self-deprecating lyrics suggest Lou Barlow. Headliners Elf Power have proven to be Elephant 6's most durable export. Their well-crafted arrangements spin off in oft-unpredictable, always tuneful directions, capable of supple beauty and splendid psych-pop plumage. Across their dozen-plus albums, they've veered through rootsy, fuzzy, dreamy and experimental incarnations without relinquishing their playful sensibility or musical warmth. —Chris Parker
