Listening to the new, full-length release, “Super Future Montage” (La Société Expéditionnaire) by Laser Background — the paisley-pop creation of Philadelphia musician Andy Molholt — is like sticking your ear into a fully stocked tackle box. Filled with hooks, Molholt has created a condensed, 21st-century version of Frank Black’s sprawling, double-album masterpiece, “Teenager of the Year” using the pop blueprints of Electric Light Orchestra, Beck, Ween, and Belle and Sebastian as the basis for his own unique (and thoroughly catchy) compositions. And like all great pop music, it just takes one listen to be hooked. Laser Background plays Sunday, Oct. 13, at Strange Matter with Richmond rockers Night Idea, Heavy Midgets and Tung. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $7. strangematterrva.com.
