Cymbals Eat Guitars, Hooray for Earth, Lyonnais 

When: Mon., Sept. 26, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

Lenses Alien, the recently released sophomore effort from Cymbals Eat Guitars, terrifically follows in the footsteps of the Staten Island foursome's fine debut. Though more squarely focused on an early '90s essence than Why There Are Mountain's indie rock grab bag, Lenses lands with aggression, whether on fist-pumping riffers or brooding ballads. Fellow New Yorkers Hooray For Earth crafts dreamy, hook-filled psych-pop anthems out of danceable electrobeats and contrasting outbound vocals and flashing textures. Atlanta's Lyonnais imagines swirling ambient drama that can be powerful and noisy or reveal itself slowly and subtly, occasionally adding reverb-heavy vocals to its long, largely instrumental pieces. —Spencer Griffith
