Living Thing

Genre: Indie Rock; Status: In Season

The trio best known for 2006’s ubiquitous anthem ”Young Folks” remains shamelessly earnest adorable. It may rot your teeth, but it’s an aesthetic they embrace without irony: Though the title track jacks its chorus from ELO’s 1976 symphonic-cheese classic ”Livin’ Thing,” the music is pure featherweight, percussion-driven synth-pop. That shtick eventually wears thin on Living Thing, but on the stomping, squiggly ”Nothing to Worry About,” it kills. B
