(Comet) Sometimes you crave music that just Astroglides through your earspace with no friction at all. Sometimes you desire pastel melodies to sugar up your brain with a jaunty insouciance—even if you're not sure what "insouciance" means. That's where Seattle quartet Hibou—led by Peter Michel—flounce in. The band (whose name is pronounced "eee-booo") sound like ultrasensitive devotees of British new wave and shoegaze. Their songs are as lithe and beautiful as supermodels. If they get the right manager and some key breaks, Hibou could be very big. You heard it here first (or maybe second—I'm too busy to google at the moment). With USF, Cashpony, Frozen Folk and Bone Cave Ballet.
