Grimes

Visions

(4AD)

Sounds Like: The third solo LP from Montreal’s sweetheart is a stunner—with just her voice and keys she’s created a beautifully dreamy, ethereal electropop opus.

Free Association: Critics are fawning all over this chick.

For Fans Of: Lykke Li + Zola Jesus, disco Joanna Newsom, witch house/grave wave.

 

Frankie Rose

Interstellar

(Slumberland)

Sounds Like: The drummer/singer/producer has broken free from Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls to give us a staggeringly beautiful and simple synthy, wispy sophomore LP.

Free Association: A little Cure-obsessed, but it’s working for you, sister.

For Fans Of: Laurie Anderson, sophisticated Best Coast, ditching dead weight.

 

The Menzingers

On The Impossible Past

(Epitaph)

Sounds Like: Philly via Scranton quartet specialize in a brand of highly digestable emotional but modern post-punk, and on their third they deliver a great, varied rock LP.

Free Association: Don’t worry, they’re staying far, far away from bullshit emo punk.

For Fans Of: Anti-Flag/Against Me!/the Gaslight Anthem, angry Weezer, local success.
