[CASIO KEYBOARD CATS] The name sounds like an Internet meme custom-built for nostalgia-fetishizing millennials, and indeed, some of Ninja Turtle Ninja Tiger’s high-energy electro-pop tracks have shades of Nyan Cat. Plus the band’s neon-heavy album covers look like they belong on a Threadless shirt. But there’s enough substance to back up the sweatband-friendly style of this Portland quartet. The band’s 2012 debut LP, I’ll Find You in the Colors, is a surprisingly polished collection—but you’d never know, the entire thing was apparently self-recorded by vocalist-guitarist Dustin Brown in his living room—of huge shout-along choruses and disco beats that sound heavily inspired by the more recent works of Phoenix, but also recalls earlier MGMT and Ra Ra Riot. Several catchy standouts like “Spinning on Fire” and “Vines, Baby!” have the potential to become dorm-room anthems—if they can just create some viral YouTube videos to accompany them (unicorns are played out, but I hear Neil deGrasse Tyson is really hot right now), the kids will be all over it.
