Opener "Roots" applies the Pixies' loud-soft-loud dynamic to an all-acoustic palette, shifting three times from a quiet, nearly lo-fi verse to an amplified, exuberantly strummed chorus. "Our House" isn't Talking Heads, but a cute, whimsical number the Moldy Peaches could've written. And this Oakland duo's emotion-drenched acoustic indie-rock only gets better from there.

At the Nomad Café (6500 Shattuck Ave., Oakland) on July 11. 7:30 p.m., free
