The 11 tracks of Skopsi, the debut album of Bloomington, Ind., trio Fluffer, contain some of the more ebullient and ambitious indie pop you'll hear in 2013. They swivel like Vampire Weekend and get as stately as The Walkmen, build with an expansive toolkit like Of Montreal and sing with the slightly sour sweetness of The Oxford Collapse. It's pastiche perfected, full of external references but delightfully full of itself, too. If these songs coalesce onstage half as well as they do on record, expect four minutes of unexpected magic at a time. —Grayson Currin
