Islands, Idiot Glee, Lost in the Trees 

When: Tue., Feb. 21, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $9-11

Touring behind its just-released fourth record, A Sleep & A Forgetting, Islands might be a bit mellow this time around. The quartet's new effort simply saunters along, with a few undeniably catchy, upbeat ditties scattered among otherwise deliberate indie pop jangles. The Valentine's Day drop is no coincidence: After a break-up and cross-country move, Nick Thorburn began writing for the album the same day one year ago; the cathartic results are unsurprisingly intimate. Lo-fi Lexington, Ky., one-man band Idiot Glee opens with retro-leaning pop soul akin to Floating Action. —Spencer Griffith
