At its very best, Crowded House has crafted melodies of Beatlesque pop perfection ("Fall at Your Feet," "Weather with You"). Though the hits tapered off after the ’90s, Neil Finn and crew still attain moments of real majesty. The band hits town with a new album, Intriguer, and a well-chosen opener: Lawrence of Arabia, a talented New Zealand citizen who has played with the Brunettes and the Ruby Suns. His record, Chant Darling, has a sun-washed California-pop vibe, torn from the mid-’60s.
