Twin Peaks

Down in Heaven (Grand Jury)

Levitating Platters

More than any of the aural devotees of the late Sixties and early Seventies, Chicago fivepiece Twin Peaks travels all paths of the overlapping decades. Third album Down in Heaven moves through Monkees-level cheese with the walking bassline and soaring "ba-ba-bahs" of "My Boys," while "Holding Roses" swings Rolling Stones, guitarist Clay Frankel mastering both Mick Jagger's vocal swag and Keith Richards' guitar privateering. Glammed-up earworm "Keep It Together" raises a lighter to Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie. (Fri., 5:35pm, Reverberation stage)
