The Minders / Of Montreal 

8 p.m. Monday, August 14. Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street).

Into Syd Barrett whimsy, Ray Davies melodicism/storytelling, Decemberists charm and Flying Burrito Brothers cosmic country-rock — all pushed through the Elephant 6 jangle-psych machine? Then you'll find much to grin and bob your head about in the sounds of Portland, Oregon-via-Denver outfit the Minders, who are unabashed sonic siblings of this evening's headliners, Of Montreal. Led by fabulously named singer-guitarist Martyn Leaper — a son of England who hasn't lost his Anglo aesthetic despite many years of living in the States — and multi-instrumentalist Rebecca Cole (who's most often spotted manning the keyboards), the Minders are a decade into a subterranean career. But they may finally crack through to commercial sunshine via the excellent new It's a Bright, Guilty World, which sounds freshly plucked from a time capsule buried in Oxfordshire sometime in 1967.
