Oulipo, Le Weekend

When: Thu., Dec. 19, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Though their approaches differ, neither Oulipo nor Le Weekend allow their distinctive styles to crowd out compelling tunes. Like Animal Collective with more soul, Oulipo's songs emerge from watery effects that make their complicated pop songs surprisingly smooth. Muscular bass directs them through harmonies and a funhouse of synthesizers and samplers; most every sound serves to enhance the band's emotional potency. Leaping from moments of delicacy to tantrums of aggressive slacker rock, Le Weekend delivers evocative songs full of bittersweet uncertainty. —Jordan Lawrence
