“I wanna write a truthful song over an ’80s groove,” sings Ben Grubin in a track from Hockey’s major-label debut. And so he does (with or without the truthfulness): Mind Chaos is full of fourth-generation Duran Duran rips too inoffensive to get too excited about one way or the other. New York’s Postelles have a new EP out they recorded with Albert Hammond, Jr. of the Strokes; it sounds not unlike the Strokes. With the Constellations.
