Week ahead: Valentine's Day with Odd Future; Yuck's throwback debut; LCD Soundsystem hits visits "Colbert"

By David Malitz

odd futureHappy Valentine's Day! We're going to see teenagers rap about extremely violent stuff!

If you go to one concert this week, make it: L.A.'s much-talked-about teenage rap crew Odd Future at U Street Music Hall tonight. It's not exactly the most romantic thing you can do on Valentine's Day -- possibly the least romantic, in fact -- but it's a great chance to get an early look at what could be the next rep phenoms. Here's the very NSFW video for "Yonkers," the new single from Odd Future's de facto leader Tyler, the Creator.

If you buy one album tomorrow, make it: The self-titled debut by throwback U.K. indie rockers Yuck. It's the greatest American indie album from 1991 that somehow got stuck in the vault for 20 years. Listen to "Georgia."

And if you stay up late to watch one artist on TV this week, make it: The soon-to-be-retired LCD Soundsystem on "The Colbert Report" tonight.
