The Delta Mirror, Remember September 

When: Fri., Aug. 20, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

The day after South by Southwest ended in March, New York Times critic Jon Pareles dismissed the niche known as chillwave—or, arguably, glo-fi and hypnagogic pop—as such: "a hedged, hipster imitation of the pop they're not brash enough to make." Los Angeles' The Delta Mirror uses many of the grainy textures and hazy blurs common in chillwave, and the band indeed shares a home, Lefse Records, with one of the microgenre's poster bands, Neon Indian. But with skittering beats, long keyboard lines and hooks that look to go star-sailing, The Delta Mirror aims for anthem status. That the band covers TV on the Radio and has been remixed by anticon Records producer Alias is telling: These songs are bound for spaces bigger than bedrooms. With Remember September.—Grayson Currin
