It would be easy to throw a handful of micro-genre descriptors at the Light Pollution. But the whole point of assigning a band a micro-genre descriptor is that its aesthetic can be neatly crammed into a corner. Not so with this Chicago foursome. On its debut album, "Apparitions" (on local label Carpark Records), the band dabbles in plenty of sounds favored by today's buzziest bands but shows off a varied palette and rarely lands in one place for too long, instead dreamily drifting from floaty psychedelic numbers to sprightly, succinct pop numbers. "Oh, Ivory!" is all uplift, while "Ssslowdreamsss" basically sounds like its Ambien-inspired title.
