Blonde Redhead, Pantha Du Prince 

When: Sat., Oct. 30, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $20

They've landed their hooks, sure, but Blonde Redhead's long been prone to floating tones and textured drift. For perhaps the first time, the New York trio's latest, Penny Sparkles, cuts the anchors too often. Even the charge of would-be anthems like the aptly titled "Not Getting There" loses to distractive indulgence. Hope they pull from their back catalogue. On the other hand, Black Noise, the latest from German producer Pantha Du Prince, finds a peerless intersection between wallpaper electronics and to-the-floor electronica. Subtle and slow-moving, Black Noise eases into its beats, allowing the meter to decorate wonderful streams of melody and textural accessories. What's more, his collaboration with Panda Bear, "Stick to My Side," puts one of the year's best pop hooks in a gorgeous granular-and-handclap haze. Expect to be moved, just enough. —Grayson Currin
