The Detroit Electronic duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., which brings its counter-intuitive name and fun Quirk Groove jams to the 20th Century Theater this week, insists on keeping its music light and breezy, infectious and upbeat. EDM this is not, as the band takes more cues from 1960s Beatles-esque Pop and New Wave than Skrillex.

In 2010, Hugo Manuel debuted Chad Valley — a project named after a British brand of toys and an area in Birmingham — with a self-titled EP. A year later, he issued another EP, Equatorial Ultravox, and in 2012 his first full-length, Young Hunger, landed. Young Hunger demonstrates the warmth of Caribou shining through, even though that inspiration stands in the shadow of the pronounced influence of 1980s Pop.

Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein knew each other for years and years before ever writing a thing together. More along the lines of acquaintances than friends, the two musicians were familiar through the Detroit music scene and maintained respect for the other’s output, but nothing ever clicked. Then 2009 came along, and their dynamic was totally revamped.
