MP3 of the Week: Abadabad "Indiana" // July 31 @ the Middle East

ABADABAD seem to be one of Allston’s best-kept summer-pop secrets. Their most recent single, “Indiana,” starts with a meandering jangle-pop guitar riff before the distinct vocals kick in, twisting and twanging and serving as a reminder that these dudes used to be in an ultra-poppy basement-show rock band called Rodeo Church. In Abadabad, though, they ditch that vibe, instead taking front dude Jeremy Lee’s moody, emotive voice to bring some mild country inspiration to a sort of lush, layered dream-pop songcraft that could still appeal to fans of bands like Beach Fossils. It’s an apt summertime soundtrack that’s left us psyched for their next recordings, set to drop next month. Grab the “Indiana” MP3 below, then hear it live Tuesday, July 31 at the Middle East in Cambridge, where Abadabad will share the stage with Magical Mistakes (on tour from Japan) and two other locals, Time Wharp and Mutual Benefit. It’s all presented by the Phoenix.
