Chicago's California Wives — spoiler alert: evidently not from California and ineligible for wifehood — released their full-length debut, Art History, in September. Like Affair, the even better EP that preceded it, it's a mannered slab of gleaming indie-pop grounded in mid-'80s post-punk precision, all wistful mantras soaring over jangling hooks, the sort of thing that sounds instantly familiar. Even the available points of comparison (Interpol? Wild Nothing? Like, Echo & the Bunnymen?) are rough approximations at best. Get there early, but stay for the favorite-sweater ministrations of Toronto's Stars, who have a strong contender for best pop lyrics of the year in "The Theory of Relativity."
