GirlsFather, Son, Holy Ghost (True Panther Sounds)
Christopher Owens turns the simple into the sublime with disarming vulnerability. The San Franciscan's near-perfect Girls debut, 2009's Album gave slow nods to Elvis Costello and David Bowie with bleached song cycles about almost androgynous love. FSHG continues this wheelhouse effect, drifting from Smile session bounce on opener "Honey Bunny" into the heavy-psych wind tunnel of "Die" and sprawling anchor "Vomit." The medicated airiness of "Forgiveness" and gospel-tinged "Love Like a River" carry the second half like Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space drifting over to The Dark Side of the Moon. (Sat., 6:30pm, Orange stage)
