DoublePlusGood, XDS, Wild Ones 

When: Sat., Aug. 27, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5
DoublePlusGood, the duo of Andy Nelson and Erik Carlson, have released a series of lovely EPs in the past couple years, and now they've got a full-length called Here They Come, the Birds of My Youth. It's a terrific album, a sweet and infectious synth-pop record that isn't afraid to sound ecstatic. With trilling, buzzing synths forming day-glo walls around Carlson's anchored drums, DoublePlusGood has quite simply found an untouched corner of the pop pasture and harvested it for all it's worth—quick-clip dance beats, wistfully familiar synth patches, layered Beach Boy harmonies, and a tweeful, gleeful energy that's impossible to manufacture. The album, out on Carlson's SoHiTek label, is destined to pack dance floors across Portland, but it sounds just as good on headphones. NED LANNAMANN
