Le Weekend, JPhono1, Second Husband

When: Sat., June 4, 8 p.m. 2016

Le Weekend doesn’t have a particularly deep catalog, but it is enough to distinguish the band as one of the area’s most consistently and subtly surprising acts. No Object, an all-too-brief EP released as an empty 7-inch sleeve in 2014, is an enigmatic indie pop gem. It’s full of classic pop signifiers like warm backing harmonies and gently vamping keys, but its elliptical approach and gentle detours suggest Bob Pollard more than Brian Wilson. Jphono1, or artist and songwriter John Harrison , owes similar debts to college rock’s heyday. His solo folk nods venture into sidewinding indie rock and dense shoegaze murk. —Bryan C. Reed
