Portland's Adventure Galley celebrates its first full-length album with a show tonight at Holocene, but the band has been at it for a while. The six-piece formed in Eugene in 2008 and won a national, MySpace-hosted online battle of the bands in 2010. Three years later, they're ready to release Anywhere That's Wild, an 11-track collection of dark, punchy synth-rock that proves the Strokes and the Killers were big influences on budding musician kids in the early 21st century. Frontman David Mills' deep, stoic vocals recall Julian Casablancas, while his mates ably glitter up their throbbing indie-rock with modern touches (the EDM beats in "Marooned," sparkling keyboard lines throughout). Through it all shines a knack for melody that will sneakily dance its way into your brain and bounce around there for a while. BEN SALMON
