Vetter Kids, We Leave at Midnight, Teenage Swoon

On Logan, Vetter Kids’ second release of the year, the trio’s pivotal step forward lies in the vocal chords of guitarist and singer Marcos Gossi. On “Vital Kids,” their offering from a split-release early this year, Gossi sings in the standardized nasal pitch of ’90s pop punk. On Logan, that influence is still there—the decade of the ’90s will always be an honorary Vetter Kid—but Gossi has developed his own approach. On “Chlorine Dream,” he throws his voice around like a wounded animal, with intense howls and fading whines. Led by singer John Dailey, We Leave at Midnight’s 2012 debut is a delightful exercise in doo-wop harmony, stadium guitar and stage organ. The compressed rock of Austin’s Teenage Swoon broods and boils in a self-contained pressure cooker. On No Hymns, the trio lets the energy out in explosive post-punk bursts. With Selfies, an SA offshoot of the powerful Sohns. $5, 9:45pm Thu, The Ten Eleven, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 320-9080, theteneleven.com—Matt Stieb
