Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. plays buzzy indie pop of the post Animal Collective/MGMT species. Think layers of bright twinkling sounds, wistful melodies, clean guitar, ethereal Casio drones, echoing synthetic percussion and reedy, upper middle-class harmonies. All of these elements abound on the group's highly pleasant-sounding 2011 full-length, "It's a Corporate World." It sure is fellas.

I read that these guys sent a note to Dale Earnhardt Jr. to let him know they weren't making funny on his name. Supposedly he's cool with it and digs their music, according to DEJJ's Josh Epstein. That's good news because a few years back, someone (not me) dressed up for Halloween as Dale Earnhardt Sr. (after the crash) and went out to the bar, and people got seriously, hair's-breadth-from-a-physical-altercation-level angry about it. You've got to be cautious with your NASCAR joking. Opening up this show are The Tricks and Whale Fire.

Check out "Vocal Chords" after the jump.
