Monarques, Later Dudes, New Move

When: Sun., May 26, 9 p.m. 2013

New Move, the new project forged by Oh Captain My Captain's Jesse Bettis, is the by-product of listening to lots of the best kinds of summertime pop. Pinches of Brian Wilson harmonies pervade tracks like "Vegetables," with Bettis' well-used penchant for melody flanking fun blasts of beach-party bombast. But the band gets raw, too. The driving urban malaise of "The City Life," one of a reported album's worth of songs waiting for release, hinges on bridging the baroque epics of Oh Captain and the throwback pop of Monarques (both highly incestuous and interrelated bands) with a grimier sonic aesthetic. The band is tracking with Jeff Bond at Clangor Den for a hopeful summer release. Get excited. RYAN J. PRADO
