[AVANT-POP] It makes perfect sense that Fol Chen is putting out its new album, The False Alarms, on Sufjan Stevens’ Asthmatic Kitty label. Like Stevens, the Los Angeles avant-pop outfit is probingly creative, and kind of weird: For one show of a monthlong residency at L.A.’s the Echo, the band performed with singers recruited through Craigslist; for another, it had metalheads Viscera cover its songs. Happily, like Sufjan, Fol Chen has the talent to back up its art-school antics. Lead singles off False Alarms indicate the group is sticking to its successful formula: taking the produced vocals and electronic beats of radio pop and turning them intriguingly, infectiously askew.
