Can anyone out-Cure the Cure? Listen to a song like "Impossible" from the Shout Out Louds' Our Ill Wills, and that song title is obviously far from the right answer. With its cheery melodies, coy vocals, and bedroom-dance-party rhythms, the Swedish indie-pop quintet finds more infectious joy in its music than the Cure's Robert Smith ever did. Hear a concert recorded live at the Parish in Austin, Tex., on March 13, 2008.

Hear the other bands from this concert: Vampire Weekend, Bon Iver, Yeasayer, A.A. Bondy, Jens Lekman.
