Junip, Acrylics 

When: Wed., May 4, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15
Junip are a Swedish trio invariably known as José González's pre-stardom group, but they deserve respect in their own right. Their 2010 album, Fields, induces shivers with their famous frontman's hushed, dulcet vocals tiptoeing over touching, pastoral rock and krautrock-y, cruise-control jams. Bonus: Drummer Elias Araya is a veritable Scandinavian Jaki Liebezeit. Recognize. NYC duo Acrylics (Molly Shea and Jason Klauber; their rhythm section upped and joined MGMT a while ago) recently released Lives and Treasure, a collection of understated, elegantly honed pop songs that resolves male/female twosomes' innate yin-yang tension with grace and verve. Easy sighs all around. DAVE SEGAL
