Javelin, Reptar, Rain in My Face 

When: Thu., Nov. 11, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $10-12

Javelin doesn't fit indie-tronic pigeonholes very neatly. It's funkier than chillwave, and their debut LP, No Más, lacks the requisite lo-fi dust that accompanied 2009's Jamz n Jemz. But Javelin's tempos are too sedate, its attentions too fleeting and its scale too understated to fit in alongside the Hot Chips and Ratatats. It has its occasional glitchy moments and even attains a certain grandeur reminiscent of Caribou, while pursuing a decidedly more downbeat approach. Javelin demonstrates lasting affection to '80s analog new wave, old-school hip-hop and pop-soul without feeling beholden to any of them. It's alluring but coy, and a party every time. With Reptar and Rain in My Face. —Chris Parker
