A few weeks ago the friend who tipped me off to Cold Cave this time last year came through with another unsolicited recommendation: Worcester sparkle-synth trio Dom, who he pretty much described as the next Passion Pit but without Michael Angelakos' acquired-taste falsetto vocals.
I instantly dug "Living In America" -- Pitchfork Media did too, apparently, and they have the track streamable -- and now Dom's at Great Scott tonight for a BU Radio fundraiser. If this song led off the new MGMT album, it'd be everywhere already. With the summer around the corner and this jam more infectious than the clap at Denby Street, it's already on its way. Pitchfork says we'll get an official Dom release next month.
Also on the bill is the moody garage-psych of Quilt, who I included in my 10 Bands to Watch in 2010 list for the Boston Herald. Excellent Sunday night ahead in Allston, but not before Rays-Sox at 1pm and Devils-Flyers at 6. Today could be legendary.
