As it turns out, the smug title of Imperial Teen’s second album is pretty apt. There’s something fundamentally warm and cuddly about the mixed-gender quartet’s seductive mix of indie-rock cliches (distorted guitars, diffident vocals) and hook-and-harmony-informed popcraft. Although the two arty seven-minute-plus tracks prove they should keep their songs half that length, those are the only missteps on this spunky, relentlessly tuneful disc. B+
