Miniature Tigers, Geographer, Chain Gang of 1974, Pretty & Nice

When: Wed., March 21, 8 p.m. 2012

At some point, frontman Charlie Brand's innocent guitar pop gave way to synthesizers, culminating in 2010's Neon Indian collaboration "Gold Skull" off Miniature Tigers' intermittently enjoyable second album, Fortress. Their latest, Mia Pharaoh, dives headlong into neutered indietronic soul like a jackknife into an empty pool. Loud dance floor pulses and wafting synths obliterate any charm Brand's hook-lined compositions retained. It bottoms out with the wretched "Cleopatra," which sounds like Christopher Cross mailing a stool specimen to Owl City's only disco. With Geographer, The Chain Gang of 1974, Pretty and Nice. —Chris Parker
