Tonight marks the release of Jack Lewis' fourth album, Lo-Fi Lvov—his first since relocating to Portland in 2006. It's a total blast of a record, full of detached cool plastered over with pre-chewed, sticky bubblegum giddiness, like the Velvet Underground and the Archies having a barbecue together, or playing volleyball, or sitting in each other's laps and sharing secrets. Brother Jeffrey Lewis' guest deadpanning is unmistakable on the hurtling, Pavement-y "Broken Song," while Ross McLeron (formerly of Southern Belle) and Simon Beins (of the Wowz) make appearances elsewhere. According to Lewis, the beach-party trot of "How to Dance on New Year's Day" is about "the difficulty I encountered when I tried to get some friends to dance on New Year's Day (circa 2005)," and it's highlighted by the perfectly wistful phrase, "You only see each other once a year or less." When Jack urges you to the dance floor, it's hard to resist. NED LANNAMANN
