What Will We Be

Music Info

ArtistDevendra Banhart
GenreFolk

The maddening irony of reviewing a watermarked disk of What Will We Be is that it forces the writer to hunt down her quaint, much neglected boombox—a gesture that implicitly bears a Devendra Banhart stamp of approval.

Love Is Not Pop

Music Info

ArtistEl Perro Del Mar
GenrePop

Discerning fans of subdued, synthy Swedepop will be hard-pressed not to fall head over heels for El Perro Del Mar’s latest release.

Magic Neighbor

Music Info

ArtistLisa Germano
GenreSinger/Songwriter

On her latest, Magic Neighbor, Lisa Germano evokes her early-’90s recordings On the Way Down from the Moon Palace and Happiness.

Carousel

Music Info

ArtistRobin Guthrie
GenreArt Rock

With all the best bits of the recent nu-shoegaze craze (see: the Big Pink, A Sunny Day In Glasgow), it’s amazing that veteran Robin Guthrie has made an album that, however unintentionally, takes the newcomers to school.

Tracks and Traces (Reissue)

Music Info

ArtistHarmonia & Eno ’76
GenreAlternative

Reissues can be a little ho-hum, but this 1976 collab between electronic-music pioneer Brian Eno and kraut-rock darlings Harmonia (a side project of NEU!’s Michael Rother) is worth the attention.

Midnight Soul Serenade

Music Info

ArtistHeavy Trash
GenreRockabilly

Rockabilly has always been a prime ingredient in Jon Spencer’s stew, but it wasn’t until forming Heavy Trash with Matt Verta-Ray that it moved front and center.

The Fall

Music Info

ArtistNorah Jones
GenrePop

With seven years, several Grammys, and one Wong Kar-wai movie under her belt since her ubiquitous debut (Come Away With Me), Norah Jones releases her fourth record to a musical landscape dominated by panty-flashing, futuristic electro, which makes her laid-back, jazzy pop seem a little bit tame.

Why You Runnin'

Music Info

ArtistLissie
GenreFolk-Rock

Take a breather from holiday commercialism with Why You Runnin’, the new, wrenchingly sincere EP from Illinois singer/songwriter Lissie.

Diamonds & Studs

Music Info

ArtistMorningwood
GenreAlt Rock

In the three years since making their major-label debut with a cool and cocky self-titled album, Morningwood’s vocalist Chantal Claret and bassist Pedro Yanowitz have split to different coasts, endured couples’ therapy (though their union is strictly creative), and redefined the passion that brought them together in the first place.

Psychic Chasms

Music Info

ArtistNeon Indian
GenrePop

It’s not dance music, it’s drug music, and it’s made by a kid who was raised on video games.
