Sixties girl-group sounds inform lots of indie rock these days. But it rarely sounds as fresh or thrilling as Brooklyn’s Lucius. That’s because Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig can motherfracking sing: Listen to the outsize drama of “Go Home,” which goes beyond just echoing Brill Building bouffant-chic. You hear the Andrews Sisters and the Roches as much as the Shangri-Las, and the production gets freaky in ways that always serve the songs: Check the smeary guitar solo on “Don’t Just Sit There,” and “Monsters,” a parlor-room waltz that cleaves to a kind of sonar bleep. On the Phil Spector-ish finale “How Loud Your Heart Gets,” the women chant that they’re “going going going to get you.” Smart money says they will will will.
