In The Valley Below are a recent Los Angeles start-up comprised of duo Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob, whose three-song demo presents us with dueling reverb-soaked vocals draped over a post-MGMT backdrop of jaunty drum machines, fuzzy but mellow rhythm guitars, and synths from space, all mixed impeccably by John Congleton (David Byrne, Okkervil River). The songs are simultaneously eerie and joyous, gooey yet cold—aim ’em straight for uber-chic top list consideration. Interested parties should check in at Maxwell’s in Hoboken on Dec. 16, where you can catch them with Mates Of State for $15.
