The Target-commercial-approved Scandinavian octet follows last year’s vibrant debut album with this somber collection of miscellaneous B sides and rarities called Layourbattleaxedown. The wall of sound is scaled down, but the group still reaches precious heights with a spooky take on the Stones’ ”Miss You” and the string-laden waltz ”Lady December.” After providing us with the perfect summer-day soundtrack, the Concretes nail the season’s quiet dusk here, their casual hymns floating on as the shadows grow long.
