“I love Oberhofer!” That’s what Paul Shaffer, the bespectacled longtime pianist of the Late Show with David Letterman, yelled after the New York band performed on the program last week. It’s praise not every band gets — and it’s the latest in a tidal wave of love that Oberhofer (the name of one young singer and his band) has received in recent months. The Guardian’s Paul Lester named the band in a recent “Band of the Day” column, where many emerging artists — like Lady Gaga — got early boosts. It’s gritty pop music about rejection and malaise. Oberhofer is refreshing; even when he uses plinky xylophones, the music maintains its boyish raucousness and never swings into being too adorable.

The Hop!, Ashylus, Straight to Our Enemies, Losing Skin, Deviance

Luxe Coffeehouse, Dennis Smith
