For Fans Of: Dum Dum Girls x Vivian Girls + Girls, Wavves + surf rock + girl groups.


Hot Water Music


(Rise Records)

Sounds Like: The Gainseville post-punks’ eighth and first in eight years is as solid as the rest of their discography; classically angry, loud, cathartic and a little screamy.

Free Association: They are the bridge between simply loud rock and balls-out punk.

For Fans Of: Leatherface/Fugazi + Husker Du, Jawbreaker x Against Me!, volume.


Killer Mike

R.A.P. Music

(Williams Street)

Sounds Like: The sickly produced (by El-P) thuggish, ruggish return to prominence for the OutKast associate is harder and sicker than anyone ever dreamed he could be.

Free Association: Does everyone else love 2003’s “A.D.I.D.A.S” as much as we do?

For Fans Of: Goodie Mob/Twista/Ludacris + Redman, Clipse with Big Boi, ATL.


Adam Lambert



Sounds Like: Idol’s most notorious second place loser’s second LP is more club-friendly and house-flavored than before.
