For its first album, 2009's Mind Chaos
wrote a batch of songs from its home in Portland, Oregon, that resembled the work of acts popular in New York at the time: MGMT, the Strokes, LCD Soundsystem. The group has since relocated to New York and accordingly made an album - this year's Wyeth Is
- whose beachy synth-pop vibe feels very West Coast. Opener Swimm
's danceable psych pop should be a natural lead-in.
