[LIGHT AND DAY] The Polyphonic Spree might go down in history as the training ground for St. Vincent, but the 23-piece rock orchestra would have a sizable legacy even if Annie Clark hadn’t come through its ranks. Who didn’t love its first hit single “Light and Day/Reach For the Sun,” a symphonic explosion that sounded like school letting out for the summer? A lot has happened since those early days of flowing white robes and revival-like shows: There’s been TV appearances, a black jumpsuit phase, even a cover of “Lithium” that vaguely resembled something off a Kidz Bop CD. The Spree’s most recent album, Yes It’s True, features more straight power-pop than choral anthems, but even with frontman Tim DeLaughter’s Ben Gibbard-esque whine further out in front, the band can still sell the heck out of an excessively loud, unabashedly happy chorus.
