Cold War Kids and Superhumanoids 

When: Thu., May 23, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $23-$25

It wasn't long ago that Los Angeles music blogs latched onto dream-pop trio Superhumanoids -- and with good reason. Formed in the Silver Lake neighborhood, Superhumanoids likely absorbed some of the musical DNA left behind by former residents Local Natives and Elliott Smith, considering its penchant for (somewhat) cerebral, heartfelt pop. At times, Superhumanoids veers into the hallucinatory guitarscapes of, say, DIIV; bleak-sounding Eighties new wave; and even its chillwave forebears. The otherworldly harmonies of members Cameron Parkins, Sarah Chernoff, and Max St. John are underscored by an ever-funky bass and tight percussion that keeps the band from floating too far into the ether. "Geri," the lead single from the band's forthcoming debut album Exhibitionists, is perhaps more nostalgically groovy and shimmery than anything Superhumanoids has released before -- hopefully giving a taste of what's to come. Superhumanoids will open for Cold War Kids at The Regency Ballroom (1290 Sutter St., San Francisco) on Thursday, May 23. 8 p.m., $23, $25.TheRegencyBallroom.com
