The Heavenly States 

Monday, December 1, at the Brick.

With a name like Heavenly States, it might seem as if this Bay area trio spends a lot of time smoking peyote and staring at the night sky trying to find Cookie Monster in the stars. Or maybe that's just me. Either way, the Heavenly States moniker is a fair assessment of the band's dreamy yet jangly pop-rock. At the least, it has a better ring to it than lead singer Tim Nesseth's previous band, Fluke Starbucker. Nesseth and sibling tandem Genevieve (vocals, violin, keyboards) and Jeremy Gagon (drums) collaborate on an indie sound and a mainstream sentimentality that lies somewhere in the nether region between Coldplay and Counting Crows.
