After graduating college in Boston, indie-popsters Midnight Snack wandered for a bit and eventually settled in Asheville, N.C. As they prepare to release their third album, Child’s Eyes, their sound inches closer to true pop and away from the artsy-crunchy experimentation of debut release The Explorist. Their sophomore recording, The Times, bridges the gap. It’s grand and heartfelt, and also a little bit homespun — as if Burt Bacharach wrote songs for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Lead vocalists Jack Victor and Katie Richter have palpable synchronicity. And it’s cute that their names rhyme. Catch Midnight Snack on Saturday, December 3, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. Cricket Blue and Erin Cassels-Brown open.
