Them Hounds — Them Hounds


Rock

Zach Hale
If there’s one defining characteristic of modern blues rock, it’s that the songs often are constructed around the band’s instrumental strengths.

Western Residents — Sunlit Nights


Indie

Zach Hale
When describing music, the word "maturity" implies that some weathering has been endured by a band — through trial and error, life events or what have you — before attaining this idea of a true identity, if it ever does.

Bowlsey — Sleepy Weather


Indie

Zach Hale
Bowlsey is a fearless bunch. Not fearless in that robotic, armor-clad superhero kind of way, but fearless because its members have nothing to lose, so why not rap over that muffled synth-pop track? Hell, you could even plant it between a couple soulful acoustic ballads. Sure, that’ll work.

Magic Magic

It could use some, use some


Thriller

Rod Lott
Michael Cera … scary? It's one of the last adjectives I'd apply to Arrested Development's poster child of awkward pauses, yet in the odd thriller Magic Magic, the vibe he exudes is nothing if not uncomfortably creepy. Give him credit for not playing another Indie Mopey Hoodie Boy.
