Wed. April 13 | If Deerhunter invents a new band on every record, then seventh outing Fading Frontier is the most inclusive one yet — a warm and tuneful embrace brought on by frontman Bradford Cox's brush with death in a car accident in late 2014. "Living My Life" has a whole new meaning. Bitchin Bajas opens at 8 p.m. at the Civic Theatre.

Brass Bed album release
Thu. April 14 | The fourth album from the Lafayette-New Orleans band, April's In the Yellow Leaf (Modern Outsider), weaves energetic psychedelic- and krautrock-inspired dark garage with twangy, harmony-filled pop, all bristling with sharp-toothed introspection. Coyotes opens at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Gland tape release
Fri. April 15 | The women of Gland bash noirish surf rock and fuzz-covered garage rock into witchy pop punk on its debut full-length cassette Neurotica (Community Records), leading with the two-chord anthem "Cram It." Princely future funk band Sexy Dex & the Fresh opens with Cult Babies, Casual Burn and Rimjob at 10 p.m. at Saturn Bar.

Sat. April 16 | In Wolf Parade, Dan Boeckner is the (relative) straight man to Spencer Krug's increasingly dangerous organ transplants. Operators — his third side-project after Handsome Furs and Divine Fits — has the same driven melodic compass but also the frazzled ghosts of a damaged clubgoer. Bogan Via and Skelatin open at 10 p.m. at Gasa  Gasa.
