Naked Giants :: Sluff

This goes all over the place, but mostly rocks hard with inventive arrangements and infectious hooks.

Telamor :: Crush

One-man band Tom Hauck is Telamor, with a variety of songs that sounds like they were lifted straight out of ‘80s college radio

Screaming Females :: All At Once

Fronted by Marissa Paternoster’s dramatic and dynamic vocals, this power trio hearkens back to the DIY indie scene

Ride :: Tomorrow’s Shore EP

Washes of fuzzed-out bliss at your choice of tempos

Ed Schrader's Music Beat :: Riddles

Heady mix of post-punk and electronic sounds, heavy on the bass riffing. Features Dan Deacon on beeps and such.

Car Seat Headrest :: Twin Fantasy

Dense arrangements make for some slowly emerging indie orchestral music. Disc 2 is the demo versions of the songs on Disc 1.

Born Ruffians :: Uncle, Duke + the Chief

Some of that weird pop, this time with a definite tinge of Americana, or perhaps Canadiana, since the band is from Toronto

Tune-Yards :: I can feel you creep into my private life

Angular compositions and Merrill Garbus’ distinctive vocals, glued together in strange uncomfortable ways, but it all works.
