Fort Wilson Riot

After coming out with an ambitious rock opera for a debut album, Minneapolis’ psychedelic art-pop Fort Wilson Riot remains a little scatterbrained in scope but has grown more intimate and simpler in sound. Musical couple Amy Hager and Jacob Mullis sweeten the pot with eye-gazing harmonies on their third full-length collection, “trilliun,” produced by 12 Rods’ Ryan Olcott. The album covers more electronic/synth-pop terrain with sometimes flimsy, cutesy results, but there are several Mates of State-style infectious singalongs and surfy, reverb-heavy slow-wave rockers to enjoy. Maggie Morrison’s and Cecil Otter’s Lalbierte open the release party with C. Kostra. Chris Riemenschneider
