Your Daily Lick: The Lovemakers

Let's Be Friends (self-released)



Coming on the heels of a series of label changes (from Interscope to Fuzz to none) and a mid-career identity crisis (epic rocker "Save Me" was good, but a bit too much for some fans), sophomore full-length Let's Be Friends finds the Oakland outfit perfecting and building on its sexy, electro-fied, eminently hummable pop anthems.

At the Independent (628 Divisadero St., San Francisco) on Sep. 11. 9 p.m., $17
