”I’m sick of people saying rock & roll is dead,” frontman Tyler Glenn laments on the angsty ”Teenage Sounds.” Indeed, the Utah quartet — discovered, tellingly, by the Killers — seem to have arrived too late. Picture Show‘s mixed bag of angular post-punk, moody synths, and blasts of mainstream rock (see ”Everybody Talks”) doesn’t quite have the wit, charm, or cool of its aughties touchstones. What remains is a handful of good-enough offerings to fill the ”rock” spot on pop radio between fun. and Maroon 5 songs. C+
