You Can Master Life is the title of DoublePlusGood's upcoming record, and if you're familiar with the band's Northwest take on heart-on-sleeve New Romanticism, you know why that's funny. The long-running Portland act returns with album number three next month on frontman Erik Carlson's SoHiTek label, once again delivering plenty of synthy hooks and melodies. There don't seem to be any answers to life's big questions, but you will find PDX Pop Now! comp standout "Sometimes" and last-gasp-of-summer mixtape go-to "He Must Be Lieing," among others in an enjoyably melancholic collection. Wednesday's Holocene show offers a first chance to hear many of the new songs live, as well as the debut of Adventure Galley disco offshoot Gold Casio. JEREMY PETERSEN
