Out today, without all that drama, is “Corsicana Lemonade,” the fifth studio album from prolific Austin quartet White Denim.

When Saturday co-headliner Beck came out with his long, blonde hair falling out of an “El Topo” hat and went into “Loser,” his breakout single from the ’90s, it seemed like Dana Carvey was working on a new impression.

Of the modern rock stars who can say they were there when punk broke, Dave Grohl is the last man standing.

What you get from “Noble Beast,” Andrew Bird’s fourth solo album since breaking with the Bowl of Fire, is what you’ve probably come to expect from the experimental pop song writing violinist: whirling whistles, swirling strings and a healthy helping of vibrato in every honey sweet harmony.

Whether he is playing solo, with a drummer or accompanied by a full band, there are things you know you can expect when Chicago’s Andrew Bird takes the stage: enigmatic lyrics, artful whistling and layered loops of sonic strings.

Too often when artists combine elements of different genres, the results sound cobbled together and stale, like a failed attempt to produce fresh moments from an amalgam of sounds that don’t really jibe.

Well, that took forever. White Demin’s second album “Fits” has been available overseas for months, but the Austin band ,who once swore they’d never have a label, folded like a tent after a debacle involving Transmission Entertainment’s short-lived record-releasing division.

Of Monsters and Men isn’t quite there yet. Through an efficient, 15-song set Monday at Stubb’s, the youthful Icelandic folk rockers spanned their nascent discography while adding a Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover and an unreleased track, “Beneath My Bed,” for good measure. It was an hour of work.
