Omni, Juan de Fuca, Neighbor Lady, Dead Neighbors

There’s no shortage of post-punk bands flirting with success beyond indie spheres these days. Out of the wiry, angular and occasionally dreary bunch, Atlanta trio Omni is arguably the most promising with something still to prove. The group, which includes former Balkans and Deerhunter guitarist Frankie Broyles and former Warehouse drummer Doug Bleichner, is more danceable than Parquet Courts and more lighthearted than Preoccupations and Savages—a winning combination. Omni’s forthcoming sophomore album, Multi-task, due in late September, will certainly give the band a chance to cement its place among a field of taut peers.
