Echoing a melody-minded crossbreed of Cat Power and the XX, buzzy British trio Daughter soundtracked steamy Grey's Anatomy scenes and dominated blogosphere chatter last year, even before releasing a full-length. After two rapturously received EPs, their debut album, If You Leave, lives up to its high expectations throughout. Impeccably produced and paced, the slick but soulful record proves Daughter capable of pulling off gently propulsive ambient-leaning indie-pop explorations, anthemic rock, and instantly accessible Feist-styled folk-pop pleasures. Opening is Daughter's new labelmate on Glassnote Records, Jeremy Messersmith. 18+, $15, 8 p.m., 318 First Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612.338.8100.
