Moon Taxi, The Requisition 

When: Tue., Nov. 27, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $9-11

Is there life after the jam? As Moon Taxi prune their more indulgent impulses for their third album Cabaret, the reggae-tinged prog experimentalists seem to be asking that question. Tracks such as "Hypnus" still move with that greasy white-boy funk saunter, but the rootsy Dead noodling that dominated 2007's Melodica has been subsumed by synthesizer textures and ambient swirl, suggesting they might've heard Radiohead in the interim. This certainly isn't Kid A, but that shroud lends a mantle of sophistication to music that still seems, for all its polished production, only vaguely attuned to hooks. —Chris Parker
