The upcoming sophomore album from Portland's Mandarin Dynasty, Feedback Time, is an album of Arthur Russell references, bottomless nostalgia, and love gone wrong. Combining well-rendered songwriting with playful arrangements, the album nods to decades of clever heartbreak pop as a host of instruments make walk-on appearances over an all-star backing band. It manages to find some magical place between sincerity and levity without feeling forced or heavy-handed, and contains at least one song that should reasonably become a cherished standard of karaoke duets. Tonight is the band's joint tour kick-off with Seattle band Hoop (featuring members of Autococoon and Sick Sad World); come eat sandwiches. JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON
