London Grammar 

@ The Wiltern

London Grammar is eminently likable. The youthful British trio, whose album If You Wait was released last year, has won over a diverse audience with a combination of haunting vocals, dewdrop guitar plucks and multilayered, electronically driven keyboards and percussion. Comparisons to The xx run rampant, and that's not a bad thing. If You Wait's detached, understated tones are echo-y on album opener "Hey Now," trippy and pleading on "Strong," and strung through with sculpted breakbeats on "Metal & Dust." If you think London Grammar is all subdued melancholy, listen to their sublime, dancefloor-driving collaboration with Disclosure, "Help Me Lose My Mind," which will bring you close to doing just that. Also Monday, May 19, with Coldplay at Royce Hall.
