England's WU LYF (World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation) make a crescendo-rich indie-rock racket that shares some DNA with music by Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. These blokes, though, seem to view their stuff less as movie-score-minus-the-movie than as alternate-universe radio fodder: WU LYF's 2011 debut, Go Tell Fire to the Mountain, closes with a tune not unreasonably titled "Heavy Pop." They hit NYC near the end of a U.S. tour that began at Coachella.
