School of Seven Bells
School of Seven Bells' cool dance beats, interweaving Euro-folkie harmonies, and wall of electronically-processed guitars are some kind of new twist on Stereolab, Cocteau Twins, and U2—the latter of whom cited the Brooklyn band as recent sonic inspiration. But these actual twins (plus guitarist) seemed to show their anonymous limits the catchier they got on their 2008 debut, Alpinisms. This year's Disconnect from Desire is much better, turning up the Deheza sisters' vocals and funky drums on subtler, warmer, meatier tunes ("I L U") and grittier atmospheric workouts ("Bye Bye Bye"). Live, they're a phenomenon apart, and this time they play the Entry on the night that Dirty Projectors play the Mainroom next door. 18+.
