Jangly guitars meet lo-fi pop vocals in a way that reminds me of Radiohead but sounds nothing like Radiohead if that makes any sense at all.

There’s definitely some sharp songwriting from the Midnight Cleaners, whose latest eponymously named EP could end up on a lineup with other local sleepy, dream-garage DIY acts like Elnuh and Vonna. Punctuated by guitar solos that almost come across as cheesy, the Midnight Cleaners EP might be the most overlooked EP of the summer. Also on the bill are echoey-synth, indie rock guy Ellis Redon and Dreambored, a sleepy, indie-garage act that’ll have you dancing during a nap.

$3, Thu Aug 30, 8pm, Hi-Tones, 621 E. Dewey Pl., hitonessa.com.
