For Fans Of: Amanda Blank x M.I.A., Rye Rye + Major Lazer, tribal living-room dances.

 

Ramona Falls

Prophet

(Barsuk)

Sounds Like: The former Menomena member’s brand of Northwestern rock is, yes, dark and rainy at times, but also beautiful, lush, emotional and thoughtful indie rock.

Free Association: It’s sad more people don’t know about Menomena—they’re SICK.

For Fans Of: Local Natives x Megafaun + funk, Radioheaded, Bon Iver, saxy times.

 

Rufus Wainwright

Out Of The Game

(Decca Records)

Sounds Like: A shockingly good record (the past few were garbage) not-surprisingly produced by Mark Ronson, artfully employing AM gold and vintage rock sounds.

Free Association: The title track’s pretty much a perfect song—smart and catchy.

For Fans Of: Patrick Wolf, Mika x Eidth Piaf, Judy Garland, operatic gay drama.

 

Carrie Underwood

Blown Away

(Sony Nashville/Arista)

Sounds Like: The ultra-cute 29-year-old Oklahoman hockey wife and Idol winner’s gone dark on this one, channeling dumped, pissed-off energy and whiskey rage deftly.
