This paper has done a poor job of cloaking our collective Lovers fandom—okay, fine, it's a creepy obsession, you happy now? Last year the trio delivered Dark Light, a remarkable album that seems to improve with each passing listen and has the distinction of not even being their best work to date—that honor goes to its sunnier predecessor I Am the West. Joining them are the ladies (and the one dude) of the Shondes, a dynamic quartet unafraid to add some jarring violin notes to their uptempo punk sound. The Brooklyn band is making the rounds in support of Searchlights, which is a more fleshed-out effort than their intensely personal 2010 release, My Dear One. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
