Tinie Tempah

Live From SoHo

(Disturbing London)

Sounds Like: The London rapper’s exploding in the U.K. with a Mercury-nominated debut, this eight-track live set’s a fun reflection of his high-energy dancey hip-hop.

Free Association: He got Wiz Khalifa on his new single “Till I’m Gone”—brilliant, mate!

For Fans Of: Dizzee Rascal x Spank Rock, Tinchy Stryder, South London swag.


The Spinto Band

Biba Democracy


Sounds Like: The Wilmington, Del.-based quintet’s original soundtrack of organ dirges, cooky guitars, surfy echoes and eerie sounds helps us wait for their 2012 LP.

Free Association: A quirky story of democracy in a little border town through Spinto ears.

For Fans Of: Yo La Tengo + Buena Vista Social Club, Mariachi bands x politics.


Chris Kasper

The First Hundred Years are the Hardest


Sounds Like: The multi-instrumental folkie is a productive Philadelphian and his third LP’s a groove-heavy, funky spin on string-based singer-songwriter folk with charm.
