On their sophomore LP, Cage the Elephant snarl, flail and smash their way through a brace of heavy yet bouncy tracks before coming to an uneasy resting place at the album’s end. Like Kentucky-bred quintet’s debut offering, Thank You Happy Birthday owes an obvious debt to the Pixies; singer Matt Shultz’s fearsome yelps come directly from Black Francis’ manic playbook. Beyond this, the band stakes out its own territory thanks to a self-aware lyric sensibility, violent-to-delicate guitar riffage and a bipolar sense of dynamics. Schulz and his cohorts pull back from the brink of chaos by emphasizing hyper-catchy chorus hooks on tracks like “Around My Head,” “Aberdeen” and “Shake Me Down.” Dollops of speed-metal (“2024”), faux-mellow pop (“Rubber Ball”) and surf guitar-rock (”Indy Kidz”) keep the listener from getting comfortable, setting things up for the closing number “Flow,” a simmering tribal stoner jam. Shultz’s bratty, taunting vocal spews are as much directed at his own rock-star pretensions as the stupidities of the world around him.
