Gardens & Villa, Palehound (Back Room)

When: Wed., Sept. 23, 9 p.m. 2015

Unlike much of modern synth-pop, Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa are happy to break up their prevailing smooth with the spastic. But the glam-informed stylistic hiccups on this year’s Music for Dogs are much more compelling than the lyrical content they deliver—vague anti-tech screeds that inevitably feel clunky and prematurely old-fashioned. It’s not that corporate domination and digital malaise aren’t relevant, but they’re hella hard to convey elegantly. —Jeff Klingman

Price: $12
