Tycho, The Album Leaf 

When: Wed., Sept. 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $16
Scott Hansen, aka Tycho, makes electronica with the lazy pace of a beachfront stroll. 2011's Dive felt worn-in and sun-kissed, the headphones equivalent of a corona flare on an old Super 8 reel. But that description undersells the sensual caress of the music in live performance, the physical thump of seamlessly incorporated hip-hop beats. Support comes from The Album Leaf, a long-running project of San Diego's Jimmy LaValle. His twinkling ambient pop got noticed at the start of the '00s through closeness and collaboration with Iceland's otherworldly Sigur Rós, but five albums (the last three for Sub Pop) have kept a cozy cult following. —Jeff Klingman
