“Here (in Your Arms),” the new single by California pop-rockers Hellogoodbye, makes the most fabulous use of the vocoder since Cher’s “Believe” had us breaking a sweat on the dance floor back in 1999. The skittering, synth-huggin’ beats on the band’s debut album, Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!, are tons of fun. Tourmate Boys Like Girls shies away from such studio trickery on its self-titled debut. But hooks are all over the Boston emo band. And unlike many of its peers, it doesn’t spend too much time whining about lost love. Like the guys in Hellogoodbye, the Boys know that having a good time is the best way to forget about your girl problems.
