For Fans Of: Beirut x Florence and the Machine x Sigur Ros, old-school Björk, the cold.


De La Soul’s Plug 1 & Plug 2

First Serve


Sounds Like: Doesn’t always have the joy and humor of their early records, but what does? If you’ve stayed a fan, though (“Art Official”!!), you won’t be disappointed.

Free Association: The memory of holding a cardboard-wrapped single tape shall endure.

For Fans Of: Digable Planets x Pharcyde, Black Sheep/Tribe, clever hip-hop.


The Lumineers

The Lumineers


Sounds Like: Denver trio’s debut of Americana is a mixed bag of folk, blues rock and pleasant boy rock, but it’s all a little bit sad and whiney.

Free Association: Could this be the first wave of Mumford & Sons-inspired records?

For Fans Of: WXPN x Calexico, Ryan Adams with Beth Orton, porch music.



A Minor Bird

(Red Velvet)

Sounds Like: A beautiful dreamy collection of tunes from a trio’s debut after time in other bands (Eisley/Mutemath); ghostly, catchy and stunning dreampop.
