Portland trio Bombs into You's new album Shake continues their catalog of punk-tinged electro-pop, and the urgency in the full-length's nine songs perpetuate a buzzing, after-midnight quality that successfully disorients then soothes the listener. While the band's reliance on vocal effects and blurred, stratospheric guitars sometimes puts the listeners at arm's length from the band—as if these sounds could be emanating out of the top of a stadium a dozen blocks away—Bombs into You's solidly written, yearning songs boast arrangements that are interesting enough to keep the listener engaged. The new songs on Shake should work a treat live at tonight's record release show. Don't miss openers Hong Kong Banana, who released the fine, Stones-y EP Now But Not NOW Now and should kick things off with the right amount of rock 'n' roll grease and attitude. NED LANNAMANN
