Mobius Band / Baby Dayliner

9 p.m. Saturday, October 21. Creepy Crawl (3524 Washington Boulevard).


After (legally) downloading the title track from The Loving Sounds of Static from the Mobius Band's Web site, we'll admit it's sort of difficult not to like these Brooklyn transplants. Equally reminiscent of Interpol and the National, the band's unique synthesis of electronic and organic elements isn't only groundbreaking — it's also catchy as hell. Also on the bill is Baby Dayliner (a.k.a. New York native Ethan Marunas), and if you can imagine Frank Sinatra crooning hip-hop lyrics over Abba's backing tracks, well, that's about as apt of a description as this writer can come up with. Plus, we don't want to be too critical: Baby Dayliner's latest album is called Critics Pass Away.
