The Depreciation Guild Tonight 

If Simple Minds and Sonic the Hedgehog had a child and then sent it off to a European boarding school, you might get Brooklyn, N.Y.-based The Depreciation Guild's new single "Dream About Me" (Kanine Records).

Fuzzy guitars, an 8-bit Nintendo soundcard and vocalist/guitarist/soundchip-maestro Kurt Feldman's head-in-the-clouds vox push this experimental-pop song into the ether where it can meet up with the oft-twinkling but sometimes antimatter-heavy tracks from their 2007 full-length, In Her Gentle Jaws.

The Depreciation Guild went to Chicago to work with Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv (who mixed their first record) on their follow-up. Feldman said they tapped Eustis on this album because they felt he employed their same ideology.

"He did a really good job just mixing our first record and offered at the end of that record to work on our next one," Feldman said. "We didn't even go looking for someone else on this record; he did such a good job, there was no need to."

Monday, Sept. 14, with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (with whom Feldman plays as well) and Cymbals Eat Guitars, 8 p.m., $8 advance, $10 door, Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208-343-0886.
