Fang Island, Delicate Steve, Gypsyblood All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard Recommended

When: Fri., Nov. 12, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $12
Delicate Steve and his boys are young. So young that they think using the phrase "as delicate as the wings of a butterfly with AIDS" in their press bio is funny. This band of New Jersey bros is fronted by 23-year-old bedroom rocker Steve Marion, and his music reminds us that it's Pitchfork's world we live in. His forthcoming debut, Wondervisions (Luaka Bop), is a rainbow of familiar influences: Ratatat-via-Animal Collective psychedelic rave, secondhand Afropop guitar slinging borrowed from Vampire Weekend, and all that major-key cutie-pie shit from Passion Pit. It's a veritable real-time mashup of indie rock's top pop albums of the past few years—rendered in a series of instrumental meditations, no less. Despite being wholly unoriginal, it's a pretty good effort for a bunch of ignorant pussies. Fang Island headlines; Delicate Steve and Gypsyblood open. —Jessica Hopper
