This San Francisco group's debut brings bright ideas to a dark corner of the indie-rock universe. Opener "Life Inside a Scream" features a bassline straight from one of Joy Division's less somber moments beneath a distinctly hummable vocal melody. "My New Heaven" is the Cure meets Slowdive: a wryly cheery, feedback-laden drone. Call them Interpol minus the long face.

At Cafe du Nord (2170 Market St., San Francisco) on May 30. 8 p.m., $10-$20
