For Fans Of: Foo Fighters x Supertramp, Del Amitri + the Cars, nerd rock, Doc Martens.


Kellie Pickler

100 Proof

(Sony Nashville/BNA)

Sounds Like: The American Idol contestant’s third LP is a solid country album from a young starlet with a bona fide voice; a little honky tonk and a little sugary radio-pop.

Free Association: Titled after liquor and you know this one’s gon’ be no-nonsense.

For Fans Of: Miranda Lambert x Taylor Swift, Loretta/Dolly/Tanya, driving mom’s pickup.



Bangarang EP

(Big Beat/WEA)

Sounds Like: Sonny Moore’s an L.A.-raised post-hardcore frontman-cum-DJ who went solo and indulged his producer-heavy, dubstep and house-flavored fantasies.

Free Association: For raving partiers amped on Red Bull/Monster who love Justice.

For Fans Of: Deadmau5 x Daft Punk, Ellie Goulding with Prodigy, Making Time.


Sharon Van Etten



Sounds Like: Our favorite Jersey girl’s much-anticipated follow-up to Epic is a stunner full of well-produced (the National’s Aaron Dessner) moods and dark stories.
