Chicago's Light Pollution gets all teary-eyed when discussed subjects like reverb, tape machines, analog synthesizers, tambourines, combining hi-fi and lo-fi tracking, and Phil Spector. The group's music has drawn apt comparisons to Grizzly Bear for its experimental overtones and tricked-out guitar effects. Tour mates I Need Sleep hail from Knoxville, Tenn., and play a spastic and atypical brand of percussive dance-rock.
