The Dead Science are the perfect college radio band, if only because listening to them is a bit like tuning your radio dial to the upper ’80s and waiting for the good stations to fade in. At any given moment, one of the Seattle art-pop group’s songs will echo Jeff Buckley, Sun Ra, or Jimi Hendrix, and usually at the same time. As such, the band is always either gloriously captivating or merely confusing, but they’re also never boring. With avant-garde glam rocker Bobby Conn and “Grace Slick impersonator” (Conn’s wife) Monica Bou Bou.
