My experience with Ra Ra Riot is that each of the Brooklyn-via-Syracuse act's albums has one unstoppably addictive track - "Can You Tell"
on the group's 2008 debut The Rhumb Line
on 2010's The Orchard
- surrounded by about nine inoffensive but forgettable chamber-pop songs. On this year's Beta Love
, the group has largely ditched the cellos and violins for a synthier electro-pop sound. I have yet to find my jam, but I'm sure it's on there.
Wednesday, May 15, at Riot Room. Locals White Girl open. $17.
