Lemuria, Old Flings 

When: Wed., July 17, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-10

The Distance Is So Big, the third album by Buffalo trio Lemuria, is one of the year's most irrepressible outings. Lyrically, Lemuria pairs an uncloaked sweetness with an undercurrent of cynicism, like two would-be lovers leery of just how this new thing might end. They match that feeling perfectly with their music, which adds surprising shards of dissonance and illogically perfect counter riffs to tunes that bound ahead like Superchunk on their steadiest pogo stick. The record lifts its title from midpoint highlight "Oahu, Hawaii," which spends four minutes building from a half-somber traipse through a post-rock-sized phosphorescence and, ultimately, into a brilliantly complicated power-pop eruption. With Old Flings. —Grayson Currin
