Buried Beds — Tremble the Sails

Some good songs reside on a conflicted release


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Buried Beds wants to be a charming pop band and a serious act at the same time.

Unwritten Law — Swan

Do you miss rock in '02? You'll love this.


Rock

Stephen Carradini
You never really forget your first love, and my initial musical passion was turn-of-the-millenium pop-punk like Blink-182 and Sum 41.

Lelia Broussard — Masquerade

Will soon be breezing through the indie scene with perkiness and wonder


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Sometimes it’s hard to pin down what’s so great about an album.

Elbow — Build a Rocket Boys!

Mushy, mid-tempo pop tunes


Rock

Stephen Carradini
The raw attitude and stripped-down power of Elbow’s 2008 tune “Grounds for Divorce” make it one of my favorite indie-rock songs ever.

Bob Dylan — In Concert: Brandeis University

A must-have for Dylan collectors


Folk

Rob Collins
A year before The Beatles exploded on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Bob Dylan planned to perform “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues” in the spring of 1963 for a national TV audience.

Dam Mantle — First Wave

A weird, wonderful electronic anomaly


Electronica

Stephen Carradini
Dam Mantle’s “First Wave” is an weird, wonderful anomaly. It’s some sort of glitchy, electronic music, but instead of being cold and robotic, it’s vivid and full of life.

Dirty Vegas — Electric Love

Sunny, optimistic Vegas, this time


Electronica

Rod Lott
If all you know of Dirty Vegas is its dark, omnipresent 2002 hit, “Days Go By,” you’ll be surprised by the trio’s third album, “Electric Love,” its first in seven years.

Noah and the Whale — Last Night on Earth

Folk band goes synth-rock?


Pop

Stephen Carradini
There’s one less witty folk-pop group in the world, and one more synth-driven pop band.

Brianna Gaither — Love Is Patient

Piano pop on the short list for 'year's best album'


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Piano-based singer-songwriters are a dime a dozen, so it’s always a shock when one immediately jumps out from the first seconds of a track.

Toro Y Moi — Underneath the Pine

Chillwaver goes disco/funk


Indie

Stephen Carradini
I’m pretty sure the whole chillwave genre was born of nervousness. New artists, afraid of their own voice, cloaked everything in waves of reverb.

Yuck — Yuck

Chapel Hill 1994 lives!


Rock

Stephen Carradini
Sometimes people buzz about a thing so that they can be excited about something. Some guy will promote a thing so that if more people get on the bandwagon, he can say he discovered it.

The Mountain Goats — All Eternals Deck

Great songs that aren't cohesive at all


Indie

Stephen Carradini

It’s hard to be on the other side of a masterpiece.

Monty Harper — Songs From the Science Frontier

Not your average kids' CD


Eclectic

Stephen Carradini
If adults dumb things down unnecessarily for kids, then Monty Harper’s not your average adult.

Luke Rathborne — Dog Years E.P./I Can Be One E.P.

'90s-influenced guitar-pop that will floor you


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Luke Rathborne’s next five days look like this: opening for tastemakers Noah and the Whale in West Hollywood, playing the Paste SXSW showcase and opening for The Strokes in Austin on the same day, playing the Filter Showcase at SXSW, then hopping on up to his stomping grounds of NYC to play Bowery Ballroom with Noah again.

Kurt Vile — Smoke Ring for My Halo

Because your lazy Friday night needs a soundtrack


Pop

Stephen Carradini
It’s Friday, and your girlfriend is having a girls’ night.
