True to their name, The 1975 did something truly, terrifically retro last year, releasing a 17-song, 75-minute collection — a “double album,” in the old tongue — as only their second studio effort. Shunning long-held industry preconceptions about pop music (that it should be short, simple and inane), the ultra-ambitious I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It topped charts in most of the English-speaking world. An indecisive, stylistic rampage through a buffet of everything from Talking Heads, Duran Duran and D’Angelo to 10cc, Air and even Enya, all laced with Matt Healy’s heavily Morrissey- and Alex Turner–indebted smarty-pants wordplay, I Like It ... is an exercise in studied eccentricity (mostly) held together by sheer melodic instinct and perverse sonic intrigue — and glittering proof that the listening public aren’t half as dumb as music industry execs imagine. Also Thursday, April 27.
