Starting life in 2004 as a 15-person, reggae-oriented enterprise fronted by former Masters of the Hemisphere frontman Sean Rawls, Still Flyin' eventually found their way back to the plucky pop sensibilities of Rawls's predecessor band without sacrificing their love for deep grooves. The San Francisco collective's ace third album, the just-released On a Bedroom Wall, throws a stylish New Wave dance party featuring plenty of shiny synthesizer squiggles and jangly guitars. Cross-breeding classic R.E.M.-styled college rock with the sleeker sounds of dance-friendly modern European acts like Phoenix, the album is an instantly ingratiating record chock full of the rare tunes kinetic enough to transform the 7th St. Entry on a Sunday night into a booty-shaking dance party. With the Joseph Bell and Dial-Up. 18+
