In House #1676: The Futureheads & Tapes n' Tapes in Salt Lake City Tonight; New Sleepy Jackson, Boy Least Likely To

It's a fairly unlikely and odd-coupled bill tonight in Salt Lake City as The Futureheads and Tapes n' Tapes play Club Sound. Both young quartets with "it" status and new albums, little else exists in common between the two acts, though that should hardly detract from the performance. Sunderland, U.K.'s Futureheads recently issued their sophomore album, News & Tributes, to generally strong reviews following the typical hype that surrounded their debut. Often grouped with other recent '80's-inspired Brit-pop acts like Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and Dogs Die in Hot Cars, a deeper examination reveals much in common with the more dub-tinged moments of bands like The Jam or even The Clash. Tapes n' Tapes, meanwhile, have recently had their debut The Loon re-released by XL after its initial appearance late last year. They're both fresh off last weekend's Pitchfork Music Fest in Chicago, which was apparently some kind of big deal.
