(Sub Pop)

Sounds Like: Spellbindingly awesome Seattle hip-hop duo of Stasia (Stas) and Catherine (Cat) who’ve nailed avant-gard hip-hop like their friends, Shabazz Palaces.

Free Association: Who’da thought Seattle and Sub Pop would give us this brilliance?

For Fans Of: Yo Majesty x Janelle Monae, Angela Davis, Baduism + sci-fi Africanism.

Happy To You


Sounds Like: Swedish dance-pop trio’s sophomore is a surprisingly chill listen, not all drunk dancefloor bangers (like “Toxic,” which they wrote); electro with substance.

Free Association: Finally! A band to put Passion Pit in their place: a dark, dank corner.

For Fans Of: Small Black x Lykke Li, Kraftwerk + Sweden, ominous dance music.



Busting Visions

(Arts & Crafts)

Sounds Like: The Canadian quartet’s second full-length is a surprise departure from their previous sound; much more high-energy, blaring fuzzy guitars and glam-rock.

Free Association: So T. Rexy it makes us desirous of long hair, platform boots and glitter.
