Small Black, Beach Fossils, Tirra Lirra Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Sat., July 10, 10 p.m. 2010

In the indie-rock zodiac 2010 is the Year of the Xanax, or at least that's what the continued demand for chillwave and dream pop seems to suggest. On one hand the sort of nebulous, echo-drenched candy floss made by groups like Brooklyn's Beach Fossils (who recently released a self-titled album on Captured Tracks) is a welcome and soothing distraction from a world in which oil flows unabated into the ocean, people who think our president is a Kenyan socialist sleeper agent hold seats in Congress, and social networking increasingly turns our spare time into a second (or third or fourth) job. On the other hand, aren't those things supposed to make the kids, like, pissed off or something? Beach Fossils also plat West Fest Saturday afternoon. —Miles Raymer
