Not from St. Lucia—nor Brooklyn, where he now resides—Jean-Philip Grobler originally hails from Johannesburg and creates euphoric, synth-driven pop that sounds like a modern incarnation of Wham! The group's latest album, Matter, tightens the harmonies and pours on a bit more schmaltz, with anthems that seem destined for the soundtrack of a rebooted Breakfast Club. Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio opens the show with tracks from his electronic solo record.
