Tender New Signs (Mexican Summer)

New Zealand native Tamaryn Sitha Brown and collaborator Rex John Shelverton don't bother pushing any envelopes with Tender New Signs. The San Francisco-based duo's second album together hews closely to the dream pop/shoegaze formula, as her ethereal vocals drift seductively over his effects-soaked arpeggios and vaguely hip-shifting grooves. Brown's born to sing this kind of music, blending perfectly with Shelverton's exquisitely crafted wall of sound. Enigmatic and gorgeous, "Prizma," "Heavenly Bodies," and "The Garden" would define shoegazer rock to alien visitors. (Fri., 8pm, Elevation amphitheatre)
