Nehru Jackets Mixtape

(Greedhead Music/Seva NY)

Sounds Like: The goofball rap trio’s Heems brings his curry-flavored flow and sticky icky beats to a dank-ass mixtape to benefit Queens’ SEVA (a multi-cultural nonprofit).

Free Association: Encouraging and supporting kids; let’s hope he put the blunt down.

For Fans Of: MF Doom x Cool Kids, Childish Gambino/Beasties, punjabi hip-hop.

First Aid Kit

The Lion’s Roar

(Redeye Label)

Sounds Like: The sisters who covered a Fleet Foxes song in the Swedish woods have a great record now that’s just as you’d think; folky, pretty, wispy and thoughtful.

Free Association: Little has changed in the gorgeous-voiced tweens since 2008—success.

For Fans Of: Neko Case with Joanna Newsom, hippie Lykke Li, forest nymphs.

Kathleen Edwards

Voyageur

(Zoe/Rounder)

Sounds Like: A stunning fourth LP from the Canadian-born singer/songwriter who’s documented a journey with a lover here, with her beautiful Americana-infused folk.

Free Association: Seems like smart, emotional music comes from cold places, don’t it?

For Fans Of: Maria Taylor x Cheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams, busking, the Bon Iver story.
