Phoenix punks Dogbreth evoke the seemingly endless possibilities of a summer’s day with their scruffy, poppy songs. The sweeping, sparkling guitars that light up their sophomore album, last year’s Sentimental Health (No Idea/Diet Pop/Lost Sound Tapes), sound just like it feels to open a screen door on a lush meadow that’s begging to be cartwheeled in. Front man Tristan Jemsek doesn’t always write purely sunny lyrics, but the band sounds so euphoric that even when he’s singing about procrastinating on the Internet in “Appetite for Distraction,” it sounds like fun. On the chorus he describes a sort of lovesick paralysis that afflicts him after he talks to his sweetheart over the phone, and that wasted time seems as precious to him as an afternoon at the beach. —Leor Galil
