Literature’s Chorus, one of the finest releases on the local Slumberland imprint this year, is a sprightly, Anglo-indebted trek through guitar pop, indie pop, power pop, bubblegum punk, jangle shamble — it’s all of those, and instantly gratifying for being so familiar. But upon repeat listening, deeper pleasures emerge: the pirouetting guitar leads on “New Jacket,” the key change that wedges a little geyser of joy into the otherwise moody “Court/Date,” and especially the opener, “The Girl, The Gold Watch, and Everything,” which is firmly in the upper echelon of jovial bar romps. This music has a rich history; skeptics even gripe that little is left to improve on. Chorus is compelling evidence to the contrary — and Literature, performing this weekend at the Hemlock (1131 Polk St., San Francisco) is having too much fun to care anyway.
